I graduated from Medical School, Yangzhou University in Yangzhou, China, in 1982. After graduated from medical school, I was honor offered a position as a tenure-track faculty member in the Department of Gross Anatomy and taught the Medical Gross Anatomy course in China for 10 years. I have attended several Advanced Anatomy training course in China. In 1992, I won an overseas academic fellowship from Jiangsu Province and came to USA and joined Dr. John Byrne’s laboratory as a visiting scientist. In order to pursue my research career, I decided to stay in the lab as a postdoctoral fellow. From 1992 to 2003, I have published five papers and presented nine abstracts and posters in the Neuroscience symposiums. In 2002, I was appointed to a faculty position in UT Houston. Since then, I have taught Gross Anatomy and Neuroscience courses for 16 years. I have the best anatomical knowledge and operation skills. Since 2003, I have dissected one cadaver every year in advance for students to use as a reference during lab and for review afterward. In order to help students to learn the course better, I dissected and captured my dissection procedures on video (43-chapter video series) for streaming over the internet. All student response to my dissection video as excellent due to my dissection video showing not only the structures of the human body, but also how to dissect out the structures. Since 2003, I have taught in the Anatomy workshop in our school and other schools nationally to train physicians. Since 2016, as the faculty member of USMLE review board, I have helped to review the Step I, step II exam questions.
I have research experiences: In my research career, I have had eighteen abstracts and poster presentations, and twenty-two original articles published in referred journals and one book in which I am a co-author – Case Files Anatomy: Third Edition, published on April, 2014 by McGraw-Hill. Recently my research is focus on the Clinical applied anatomy field.
