Hsin-Yi majored in Biomedical Engineering during both her bachelor’s and master’s degree at National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University in Taiwan. Fascinated by the nature of stem cells and their various roles in tissue engineering, she decided to pursue a Ph.D. degree to make strides toward her ultimate goal of translating lab research to clinical applications. Before arriving at WashU, Hsin-Yi worked on discovering gout-related antibodies and antigens as a research assistant. The experience broadened her horizon in the field of immunology and enriched her lab skills in biological assays. When Hsin-Yi is outside the lab, she enjoys learning foreign languages, listening to different genres of music, and making YouTube videos in her leisure time. She is “excited to join the McDonnell Academy to meet people with different interests and to understand each other by exchanging ideas and working together. “
