I received my Bachelor’s Degree in 2015 at the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Jilin University, during which I won a National Scholarship for Encouragement and was chosen as Model Student of Self-reliance. I finished my master’s training in 2018 at the Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, Jilin University. I studied the potential mechanism of HDACIs’ protective function in rats with myocardial ischemia. During master’s period, I won the Annual Academic Scholarship every year and participated in publishing two articles. Now I am a PhD student in the group of prof. dr. Rudolf de Boer and my current research focuses on cardio-oncology.
