Dr. Xue-Song Liu obtained his bachelor  degree from School of Life Science, Wuhan University in 2002. He received his  doctor degree from Institute of Health Sciences, Shanghai Institutes for  Biological Sciences in 2007. He did his postdoc research in Medical School and  School of Public Health of Harvard University from 2008 to 2015. Dr. Liu joined  School of Life Science and Technology of ShanghaiTech University as an assistant  professor, PI since June 2015.

Research  Interests
Cancers are majorly caused by mutations or  aberrant expression of cancer genes. We are interested in the molecular and  genetic study of human cancer, and will use multiple approaches, including  biochemistry, cell biology, bioinformatics and mouse model to study the genomics  of human cancer. We will identify and study the function of novel cancer genes,  particularly those genes that play roles in regulating chromatin structure and  RNA biogenesis. We are also interested in therapeutically targeting cancer cells  with defined common genetic alterations.
