>> Personal profile
Pro. Lian received her ph. D. degree from Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2006. In the same year, she entered Shanghai Jiao Tong University to conduct research on the regulation of light signal in plant development. From 2016 to 2017, she further carried out academic exchanges and research work on diploid strawberry development in professor Liu Zhongchi's research group at Maryland University. After returning to China, her research group mainly studied the molecular mechanism of light signal regulation on fruit development and quality formation of wild diploid forest strawberry. At present, she has hosted three projects of national Natural Science Foundation of China, participated in 5 key projects of National Natural Science Foundation of China and transgenic special projects. As the first, corresponding and co-author, she has published more than 40 SCI papers in Genes & Developmen, Plant Cell, PNAS, Molecular Plant and so on.
