Wellcome Trust Centre For Mitochondrial Research

Biography

I am a medical trainee from China and have now come to the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research to pursue a PhD. I am working under the supervision of Dr Amy Reeve and Professor Sir Doug, working on a project aiming to explore mitochondrial biogenesis in Ageing and Parkinson’s Disease. My main motivation stems from the patients I have encountered as a doctor and wanting to gain a further understanding into neurodegenerative diseases. The combined research undertaken by the team will hopefully lead to a therapeutic outcome.
