Meilun He

Meilun HeAfter graduating from Anhui Medical University, I practiced as a resident doctor in respiratory medicine at The First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University. I joined the Diabetes Research Program at New York University School of Medicine in November 2015.

Currently, I am working with Dr. Michele Manigrasso and Jinghua Zhang. We are specifically interested in the role of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) and its cytoplasmic domain binding partner mDia1, which is essential for RAGE signaling as a fundamental therapeutic target for diabetic complications.

My future plans are to explore the correlation between RAGE and lung diseases such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), asthma and lung cancer.
