Short biography

Xue-Bi Cai got her bachelor’s degree from Wenzhou Medical University (WMU) in July, 2015. Then she continued her education as a graduate student in WMU and got her master’s degree in July, 2018. At the meantime, she finished working as a rotation doctor in the Affiliated Eye Hospital and successfully passed the examinations in the Resident Doctor Standard Training System. Now, she is studying for PhD program and playing a pivotal role for the collaboration between Jin Lab and the Laboratory for Oocyte and Embryo Development of Monash University in Melbourne.

Research directions

Her research interests focus on molecular genetics of ocular diseases, esp. retinitis pigmentosa and allied diseases.
