Project title: The role of TOX (thymocytes high-mobility group box protein) in cutaneous T cell lymphomas


I joined UBC to pursue a PhD degree in Experimental Program under the supervision of Dr. Youwen Zhou, after graduating from Peking University, China in 2010 with a Medical Doctor degree, majoring in Dermatology. I joined CIHR-SRTC in Oct, 2010. My current research interest is the molecular mechanism of cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL. Specifically, I will investigate the role of a transcription factor, TOX (thymocytes high-mobility group box protein), in the pathogenesis of CTCL. I am also interested in unraveling the mutation(s) responsible for primary hyperhidrosis.
I am currently serving as the director of Skin Cancer Prevention and Public Education, Canadian Melanoma Foundation, raising public awareness on skin cancer risk factors and sun safety. I also serve as the Sports coordinator at Graspods in BC cancer research center, actively involved in the diverse academic, sports, and social events in BC cancer agency.
