Hongde Liu, Ph.D, associate professor;
Research area: Bioinformatics, with more than 40 peer-reviewed papers as a major contributor.
Education and work experience：
Received a PhD in Northwest Normal University；A Postdoc in Southeast University from 2006 to 2008; Work experience as a visiting scholar in Hong Kong Baptist University, Baylor College of Medicine and Emory University.
Bioinformatics: epigenomics, cancer omics. Through modeling the biomedical big data, we identified new diagnostic markers and therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease and cancers.
