Hi, I am Liqian Ma.

I obtained my PhD in Immuno-Oncology at the Nelson Lab, where I studied how 27-hydroxycholesterol promotes breast cancer metastasis through the modulation of myeloid immune cells.

My expertise lies in cancer immunology and bioinformatics/statistics. My skillset includes, but not limited to, primary cell culture, animal models, flow cytometry, RNA sequencing analysis and single-cell RNA sequencing analysis. I am also an advanced user of R and SAS for statistical analysis and data visualization.

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

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