MD, Peking University

Ting earned his PhD in Cell Biology from Peking University, China in 2016 under the supervision of Professor Hongkui Deng. In his PhD study, he and colleagues originally developed and optimized a robust chemically-induced reprogramming system, which is a novel approach to convert mature cells into a pluripotent state by the induction of small molecules (Zhao et al., Cell, 2015, co-first author). Then, he and colleagues investigated the molecular roadmap of chemical reprogramming by single-cell RNA-sequencing and uncovered new mechanistic insights into the nature of induced pluripotency (Zhao et al., Cell Stem Cell, 2018).
