Ying HU is a cancer cell biologist who has severed on the School of Life Science and Technology in HIT as a professor since 2012. Dr. HU earned her B.S. in the Public health at Shandong Medical University in 1999 and M.S. in Biochemistry and molecular biology at Fudan University Medical School i n 2002. She worked i n the Princess Wales Hospital, the Chinese University of Hongkong from 2002-2004 and received her Ph.D. in Cancer Biology at University College London (UCL), UK in 2009. Since then, she worked at Oxford University as a biologist and postdoctoral fellow until she joined HIT.

Her research mainly focused on cancer biology specifically in the field of drug response and cancer metastasis. p53 is the most frequently-mutated gene in human tumors. Over 50% of all tumors and almost every type of tumor contain p53 mutations, whereas wild type p53 tumors are often accompanied with the defects in p53 signaling components. No doubt, revealing p53’s functions and its regulatory mechanisms is critical for understanding the molecular mechanisms of oncogenesis. Dr. HU’s research interest is to investigate p53 signaling and particularly to dissect the interactions of p53 family members with other upstream regulatory proteins, such as ASPPs. The research in the lab is carried out at molecular and cellular levels using both cancer cells models and clinical human cancer tissue samples. The methods and technologies used in her current lab include in vitro cell culture, MTT, Western Blotting, FACS, RT-PCR, molecular cloning, soft agar assay and many other molecular and cellular tools. The goal of laboratory is to develop clinically relevant biomarkers and therapeutic targets for human malignancy diseases.
