Basic and clinical studies of gastrointestinal neoplasms and non-neoplastic diseases


Yun Cui, M.D., Ph.D. I have long been engaged in biopsy and postoperative pathological diagnosis of digestive tract tumors and non-neoplastic diseases. Good at endoscopy combined with pathology in the diagnosis of early gastrointestinal cancer. I am familiar with the endoscopic and pathological diagnosis system of early gastrointestinal cancer in China and abroad, and have rich clinical experience in pathological diagnosis and precise treatment of early gastrointestinal cancer. The carcinogenesis pathway, precancerous lesions, risk factors and pathogenesis of early gastrointestinal cancer were studied in depth. I have hosted a National Natural Science Foundation project and published several papers in international journals. At the same time, I have accumulated a lot of practical experience in the pathological diagnosis and differential diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease. I have described the biopsy mucosal characteristics of Crohn's disease in detail in international journals. In addition, I have been engaged in the teaching of digestive pathology and the guidance of postgraduate students for a long time. I keep track of the research progress and diagnostic consensus in related fields, and provide the latest knowledge system for students. I am a good mentor and helpful friend to students.
