Topic: Discovery of a new amyloid associated with neurodegenerative diseases in human brains
Professor Cong Liu graduated from Jilin University (2002) with a bachelor's degree and a Ph.D. degree from Peking University (2008) and then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at UCLA & HHMI in the United States. At the end of 2013, Prof. Liu joined the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences as a researcher at the Interdisciplinary Research Center of Biology and Chemistry.
Professor Liu's research mainly focused on the mechanism of protein phase separation and phase transition, as well as the relationship between abnormal regulation and neurodegenerative diseases, and developed new methods of chemical intervention. Prof. Liu and his team discovered and elucidated structural polymorphic and their pathological significance in the aggregation of a-syn, a protein that causes Parkinson's disease. In recent years, he has published more than 40 papers as the corresponding author. Including Cell, Nature sub-journals (10 papers), Cell Research (5 papers), PNAS (6 papers), etc. Wrote several reviews and review articles for Nature series, Cell, Trends, etc.
