Guang-Qian completed his BS in Medicine and MS in Immunology in China and received his PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from SUNY Downstate Medical Center. Before joining the University of Rochester Medical Center, he spent the 2008-2013 academic years as an assistant professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Medical Center. His interests focus on the diagnosis of urologic neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases and translational research in the area of urologic tumors, particularly prostate and bladder cancers. He is involved in the exploration of the diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers as well as the underlying mechanistic roles these biomolecules have played in the development, progression, and recurrence of these cancers.
Meanwhile he also has an interest in studying the role of small noncoding RNA in the tumorigenesis of testicular germ cell tumor. His study will allow us to better understand the biology of these tumors and aid in optimal clinical management of these patients.
