May (Xueqi) Hu (China)

I grow up in north of China. With the influence of my parents, I started to be interested in biology and pharmacology. I studied Pharmacy at University of Nottingham and found my passion for genetics and genomics when doing my master – Genes, Drugs, Stem Cells – Novel Therapies at Imperial College London. Before joining the Anderson team, I was working on the project ‘Cardinal’ which is a population-scale single cell RNA profiling PBMC project, discovering eQTL variants and rare transcripts. I am very keen on single cell studies such as discovering rare alleles that are linked to disease phenotypes. I hope my work in the team would lead me to better understanding of complex diseases and disease atlas. I like playing badminton, traveling during my free time.
