Venue: 431, Lecture Hall, College of Landscape Architecture, NEFU

About the Speaker

Min Liu, female, Ph.D., is a researcher at the School of Medicine of Stanford University and a member of the American Society of Plant Physiologists, the American Society for Microbiology and the American Society for Space Biology. She graduated from the Department of Biology of Qufu Normal University in 1992 and earned her master’s degree of plant physiology at the Institute of Botany, the Chinese Academy of Sciences. From 1997 to 1999, she worked as an assistant and lecturer at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Peking University Health Science Center. Then she won the scholarship for a Ph.D. program in biology of the Graduate School of the University of Louisiana and went to the United States for further study. She earned her Ph.D. in biology in 2004, and worked as a postdoctoral researcher and researcher successively at the Department of Pharmacology of the University of California, Davis and the Department of Medicine of the Stanford School of Medicine, dedicated herself to the research on microorganism mycology and animal development. During the years she spent in the United States, she has taken a dominant role in a wide range of projects of the National Science Foundation of the United States and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; and published a number of articles on SCI journals. During her work and study at Stanford and the University of Louisiana, Doctor Min Liu has been engaged in the research on plant cell signaling. She is scheduled to deliver an academic report on the study of new plant lipid signaling molecules.
