Postdoc Mentor
Years at Genentech
Awards & Honors

I joined Genentech in the end of 2022 with the inspiration of many Genentech scientists aiming to transform both scientific discovery and patient care. Before Joining Genentech, I was an associate professor at Zhejiang university and a research scientist in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

My research career has been focused on developing ultrasensitive and high-throughput protein measurement technologies for low-input samples. At Genentech, I lead a research group focusing on the development and implementation of single-cell and spatial proteomics technologies to provide analytical support for drug discovery R&D.

Postdoctoral Mentor

Postdoc is an integral part of Genentech’s R&D portfolio. I am grateful of the opportunity to mentor postdoc researchers in my lab. We will partner together to tackle the most challenging technological and scientific problems with creative and innovative approaches. In my previous career paths, I deeply benefited from several postdoc experiences. I commit to do so to inspire and help the growth of next-generation scientists.
