Molecular mechanisms that regulate ligand-independent nuclear localization of ER alpha in vascular cells
Qing received her M.D. and Ph.D. from Shanghai Medical University. This was followed by training in pediatrics and a position as a staff pediatrician in the Department of Infectious Disease at Children's Hospital, which is affiliated with Shanghai Medical University. She came to the United States in 1998 and joined Dr.Karas' lab in 1999 for postdoctoral training. Her research focuses on the molecular mechanisms that regulate ligand-independent nuclear localization of ER alpha in vascular cells.
