    A senior staff scientist has more than 10 years of experience in hematology and stem cell research. My research interest covers in vitro and in vivo functional study of leukemia-causing mutation and development of viral vectors for gene therapy. I have received my PhD from The Institute of Cancer Research, London, UK with a focus on mouse modelling of Mixed Lineage Leukaemia gene amplification. Then, I became a post-doctoral research scientist at the University of Oxford, UK with a focus on functional characterization of splicing factor mutations in MDS. After that I worked as a Gene editing Senior scientist in Adaptimmune Ltd for T-cell immunotherapy. At the moment I am a staff scientist at St Jude Children Research Hospital Vector Development Core specialized in development of viral vector for gene therapy. 

    Research Interest: Hematology; leukemia; mouse modelling; gene editing; stem cells; viral vectors; gene therapy
