    Post-Doctoral Fellow

I had my PhD training with Dr. Kuo-I Lin at Genomics Research Center, Academia Sinica in Taiwan, where I explored how Blimp-1, a transcriptional repressor, is modulated by SUMOylation during plasma cell differentiation. In 2013, I received my PhD degree from the Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, National Yang-Ming University in Taiwan. After that, I stayed in the same lab as a postdoctoral fellow and got a two-year funded postdoctoral fellowship from Academia Sinica to keep investigating the functional post-translational modifications on Blimp-1 or in B cells. In 2014, I obtained a one-year funded Postdoctoral Research Abroad Program award from Ministry of Science and Technology in Taiwan and joined to Dr. Ari Melnick’s lab as a postdoctoral fellow at Weill Cornell Medical College in 2015. Currently, my work aims to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanism of epigenetic and transcriptional regulation in B cell lymphomas.
