Liu
 
 Wanzhao Liu, PhD

 Instructor, University of Massachusetts Medical School

 

 

PhD:
Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Department of Biology, Shaanxi Normal University

Research Interests:
I am focusing my research on neurodegenerative disorders, especially Huntington’s disease (HD). HD is an inheritable neurodegenerative disorder currently no effective treatment available. The newly established RNAi is recognized as the most promising technique to cure this disease. My research interests cover from diagnostic methods to the designing and validation of the target by using cell culture and transgenic mouse models. The successful use to RNAi in HD patients will not only cure their disease, but also provide important technical experience to use the methods in other neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease.
