Research synopsis: 

As an indispensable molecule of living organisms, RNA plays key roles in various biological processes at both intra- and inter-cellular levels. My overall research interest is to study RNA from birth to death during organism neurological development, and its malfunctions in diseases for effective therapies in clinics. My research has been always implementing inter-discipline approaches, including bioinformatics (genomics), biochemistry, innovative biotechnologies, genetics and molecular biology.
