Tzu-Pin Lu, , National Taiwan University

Prof. Lu got his Ph.D degree from the Graduate Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Bioinformatics, National Taiwan University, Taiwan. Subsequently, he continued his post-doc training in the National Center for Toxicological Research, Food and Drug Administration, USA. In 2014, he returned to Taiwan to serve as an assistant professor in the Department of Public Health, National Taiwan University, Taiwan. His major research interest is to utilize bioinformatics approaches to analyze high-throughput genomic data in cancers and cardiovascular diseases. For examples, he has reported SEMA5A is an important tumor suppressor in lung cancer and discovered several de novo DNA germline variants in Brugada Syndrome. In addition, he developed several online analytical systems and databases to provide an efficient and user-friendly way to analyze genomic data. For instance, users can easily identify the target genes and biological functions of their interested miRNAs through the analyses in the miRSystem. In conclusion, Prof. Lu has focused on both the analysis methods of genomic data and the genomic changes of specific diseases.
