Hi, I am Liqian Ma.

I am currently a PhD candidate in Physiology at the Nelson Lab, where I study the mechanism by which 27-hydroxycholesterol promotes breast cancer metastasis.

During my PhD, I have acquired skills in molecular biology and bioinformatics, including, but not limited to, primary cell culture, animal models, RNA sequencing analysis, single-cell RNA sequencing analysis and GWAS. I am also an advanced user of R and SAS for statistical analysis and data visualization.

I have a strong interest in integrating genomic studies with immuno-oncology in my future career.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in working with me.
