Resume

Dr. Xueli YangAssociate Professor of Tianjin Medical University received his Ph.D. degree from Peking Union Medical College in 2014, after a one-year training in Tulane University, USA, as a visiting scholar. His research interest mainly focus on the effects of environment pollution (e.g. air pollutants) on chronic diseases and risk prediction for disease development. He has published over 30 original research articles in peer-reviewed journals, including some high-impact journals such as Circulation, and Hypertension etc. Dr. Yang has already been a Principle Investigator in one grant supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) as well as a co-Investigator in several projects granted from the Ministry of Science and Technology, PRC.
