Biography

After obtaining my M.D. in China, I went to UK to pursue a Ph.D. in neuroscience. I entered the field of retinal degenerative diseases and repair as a post-doc working with Professor Ray Lund PhD, FRS, at the Institute of Ophthalmology, UK. Our main research projects were to (i) understand the underlying pathology of retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular disease; (ii) develop more effective and early diagnosis of these conditions; and (iii) develop therapeutic approaches to ameliorate these blinding diseases. In 2001, I moved with Professor Lund to the Moran Eye Center, UT, and was promoted as assistant professor later. In 2006, I moved to Casey Eye Institute as faculty. I established an independent research program and was award with NIH grant. Now as faculty member, I am working at Regenerative Medicine Institute at Cedars-Sinai medical center. We have recently awarded with DOD grant using stem cells to treat traumatic optic neuropathy, and grant from CIRM as part of the disease team. The outmost goal of our research is to use stem cell therapy for treating vision loss.
