Yingying Meng, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral fellow, Huilin Li Laboratory

Biography

Dr. Yingying Meng earned her Ph.D. in biochemistry from the College of Life Sciences, Capital Normal University and a B.S. in biological science from Lang Fang Normal University. Her graduate work focused on ­­­­the degradation of RB by the ubiquitine-proteasome pathway. In 2021, she joined the lab of Dr. Piroska Szabó as a postdoctoral fellow.

 

Current research focus

Dr. Meng’s research focuses on how proteins safeguard genetic integrity of species by directly binding to PPRs and eliminating Z-DNA structure in the germ cells.
