Dr. Lu received his Ph. D. in Biological Sciences from National University of Singapore in 2013. Afterwards, he did his post-doctoral training in Genome Institute of Singapore. In 2015, he joined State Key Lab of Medicinal Chemical Biology and College of Pharmacy, Nankai University. He has published on world-renowned scientific journals such as Nature Cell Biology, Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, and Cell Stem Cell. His current research interests lie on applying functional genomics to study stem cell biology and aging-related diseases.
