It has been 10 years since I joined TGI in 2007. And I want to take this opportunity to say happy 10th anniversary to George.

I majored in cardiovascular sciences. And before joining George, I worked for Sinopharm and also served as a physician prior to that.

What attracted you to work at The George Institute?
To be honest, I joined TGI by an astonishing stroke of luck. When I worked for China National Medicines Corporation, I connected with Professor Wu Yangfeng who is the Professorial Fellow at TGI now and was the Executive Director of TGI at that time. And I was impressed by his career aspirations and meticulous working attitude. What’s more, the CPACS research TGI was conducting at that time was quite meaningful and fit perfectly with my major.

Basically I still work in cardiovascular arenas. I am currently responsible for SSaSS research project and project management training.
