Hongbing Liu is an Assistant Professor in Department of Pediatric Nephrology, School of Medicine Tulane University. He completed his Ph.D. at Hong Kong Polytechnic University and his undergraduate and Master degrees at Xiamen University in China. Since joining a well-established developmental biology laboratory of Dr. YiPing Chen in 2004, he has been working on genetic and molecular control of mammalian organ development and is very versed at employing genetic, biochemical, cell biological, and molecular biological approaches to address kidney development issues in mouse model systems. His current research interests mainly focus on the roles of Histone Deacetylases (HDACs) in kidney development.
The regulation of kidney development by Histone Deacetylases
Since 1987, Dr. Liu has conducted research in a number of different institutes in mainland China, Hong Kong, and USA. Dr. Liu has the training, expertise and motivation required to successfully carry out the proposed research project. Since joining the laboratory of Dr. YiPing Chen in 2004, he has been working on genetic and molecular control of mammalian organ development. In the past years, he has generated various transgenic/knockout/knock-in mouse lines to study the functions of many different genes in...
