Professional Statement

I graduated from Monash Medical Centre, Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, with a PhD in Biomedical science field. I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher in University of California, Davis for last 5 years. During my PhD and postdoctoral training, I have gained extensive experiences in histological and pathological analysis. I’m familiar with operating the automatic tissue processor, routine histological processing and decalcification processes, and both paraffin and frozen block sectioning. I have almost 10-years experiences of routine and special staining, immunohistochemistry staining, immunofluorescence staining, in-situ hybridization, imaging analysis, laser capture, RNA-Seq, Western-Blotting, and quantitative and qualitative PCR. Furthermore, I have much more experience in Excel, GraphPad Prism, PowerPoint and MS word.
