Clinical Associate Professor, UBC

Short Bio:

I earned my medical degree from the Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China, and a PhD degree in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine from the University of British Columbia. After a couple of years of postdoc research, I started my residency in Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland for a year and returned to UBC to finish my training in Anatomic Pathology. After completing a Genitourinary Pathology fellowship in MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, I came back to BC Cancer Vancouver Centre as a consultant pathologist.

My research mainly focuses on malignancies of the genitourinary system. I am also interested in molecular biomarker studies in different tumors, including breast cancer and lung cancer.
