My name is Chen Huang, and I'm a Chinese graduate student in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology (CDB). I received my Bachelor's degree from Xiamen University and my Master's Degree from the Inst. of Biophysics of Chinese Academy of Science. I joined Dr. Guoqiang Gu's lab in CDB in 2010 and thereafter I've been investigating the beta-cell differentiation during the pancreas development.
In my spare time, I love playing basketball and PC games with my friends. I love the music city of Nashville, a beautiful and quiet one, and Vanderbilt is an excellent university for international students. People here are friendly and helpful, and I suggest incoming international students get involved in the life here actively and enjoy absorbing the different culture and having more friends.
