Brief
Introduction
Dr. Wen Ning received her Ph.D. in Science of Biology from NanjingUniversity in 1994. She took her postdoctal training on cigarette-related COPD in Dr Augustine Choi’s Lab at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center from 2000 to 2005. Then she went back to China and worked in Nanjing University Model Animal Research Center as a professor to study Lung development. In 2008, she jointed Nankai University College of Life Sciences as an investigator and Ph.D. supervisor to study lung development and lung diseases.
