Dr. Danli Jiang comes from Jiaxing, Zhejiang province, China. She graduated from Zhejiang University. And then came to the university of Pittsburgh as a post-doctoral associate for three years. The main research interest of Dr. Danli Jiang is to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the contribution of disease-associated, non-coding functional SNPs in aging-related diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Including identifying the causal SNPs as well as the SNP-bound regulatory proteins based on genome wide association studies (GWAS). Ultimately, to identify new drug targets and to apply these findings to develop allele-specific precision drugs for aging-related human diseases as well as other diseases.
