I started my research career in Vanderbilt after I got my Ph. D from the Institute of Hydrobiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2005. When I arrived at Vanderbilt I first used Zebrafish to study the genetic signaling pathway that causes congenital cardiovascular diseases. In 2008, I joined the Magnuson lab as a research fellow in order to shift to mice as a model system. My project was to characterize the role of Insm1 in Islet development. I also made vectors that were used in RMCE experiments to generate mice for studying the transdifferentiation of acinar cells to pancreatic beta cells.
