I am currently a pharmacology student. I am very interested in the G protein coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling and my research focus on the conformation change during desensitization. I join both Tina Iverson's and Seva Gurevich's labs trying to crystallize rhodopsin and v-arrestin complex.  

I came to Vanderbilt in the fall of 2010, after completing my bachelor degree in Tongji University, Shanghai, China. Vanderbilt is a great place where you are encouraged to seek all the possibilities. The campus is pretty and people here are very friendly. I like traveling around during the free time.
