Research Interests: Hepatic glucose and lipid metabolism.


I have been a physician of Endocrinology in clinical work for 25 years. Now I work as the associate professor in Endocrinology department. I am good at the diagnosis and treatment of various endocrine and metabolic diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, thyroid, adrenal and other diseases, especially in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes related fatty liver and have abundant experience of blood sugar regulation at post-transplantation.

During my work period, either as the first author, or corresponding author, I have published a total of 15 articles in core journals domestically and abroad. Meanwhile as the first person in charge, I had successively undertaken several funds from the Municipal Science and Technology Commission, the Health Bureau and the school fund.

From 2013 to 2015, I worked as a visiting scholar at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the United States. The major research direction is hepatic glucose and lipid metabolism.

I had been served as our department teaching director for almost 18 years. Back from JHU, I immediately devoted to the brand new teaching job of Ottawa-Shanghai joint school of medicine. I was dispatched to Ottawa medical school in 2016 as content expert, learning the new teaching skills there and started to play my new teaching role in the section of endocrinology education. I had been the endocrinology content expert for 4 years and worked as the chief teacher in Diabetes and Thyroid education for 5 years. After 5 years of teaching, I had already accumulated lots of teaching skills in lecture, UDA and CBL. During my teaching career, I gained Excellent Teacher Award for 6 times.
