Summary: MD/PhD student at Yale School of Medicine
Growing up, I not only gained a deep appreciation for cultural diversity through living in four different countries (China, Australia, Canada, and the USA), but also became motivated by my fascination with the study of life to discover new knowledge. My innate curiosity and passion for scientific research led me to pursue a B.S. in Bioengineering at the California Institute of Technology, where I gained cutting-edge insights into complex modern diseases and pursued extensive investigations to find therapies for leukemia and diabetes. At Cambridge, my MPhil in Clinical Science (Translational Medicine and Therapeutics) will provide me with valuable knowledge and training in applying knowledge of disease mechanisms to guide powerful therapeutic drug development. I will gain an ideal foundation to become a physician-scientist, translating my research findings into more effective healthcare and providing people with the knowledge and treatments to battle their diseases.
