Lu Yue 岳麓

  • Fellowship in 2021 at Harvard Medical School
Dr Yue received her BSc degree in Biochemistry in 2014 and her PhD degree in Life Science in 2020 from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. During her postgraduate study, she focused on the post-transcriptional regulation of muscle stem cell quiescence and activation in Dr Tom Cheung Lab. She was awarded the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship from 2016-2020.  After graduation, she joined Dr Leonard Zon Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School as a postdoctoral research fellow. Dr Yue received the Croucher Foundation Fellowship in 2021. Currently, she is working on the characterization of small molecules in hematopoietic stem cell expansion and clonality.
