About Qin Yu

I am interested in understanding host-microbe interactions and their role in cancer development. My undergraduate research at Huazhong Agricultural University was on the bioavailability improvement of Bacillus-produced surfactin on insulin administration in diabetic mice. As an exchange visitor during my senior year at University of Florida, I did cancer research in Dr. Jianrong Lu’s lab exploring the LKB1-CREB-GDF11 pathway as a possible cause of muscle wasting syndrome in cancer patients, and the mechanism of action of LATS-CTCF. I joined Dr. Christian Jobin’s lab to study how microbes and their metabolites contribute to the development of colorectal cancer and intestinal inflammation.
