During her Ph.D., Lyuqin used plants as a model to identify a critical signaling pathway in the process of injury-induced stem cell differentiation. After that, she joined Stanford University as a postdoctoral fellow to study the function of the Retinoic acid signaling pathway in autism disease using the human iPSC system. Currently, she works on validating and building new drivers of invasive lobular breast cancer (ILC) progression.
