Research Interests:

Circadian systems provide a fitness advantage to organisms by improving their ability to react to cyclic factors in the environment, especially in response to light/dark cycles. The research goal of our laboratory is to understand the mechanisms of the circadian clock at molecular, genomic and behaviour levels.

2008 National Outstanding Youth Project by Natural Science Foundation of China

2010 Chief scientist of National Key Basic Research Program of China

2016 The Newton Advanced Fellowship by the Royal Society
