Long Chen, MD

Department of PET-CT center at the Yunnan Tumor Hospital / the Third Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University, Kunming, China; Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Kunming Medical University, Kunming, China

Dr. Chen achieved his master degree in biochemistry and molecular biology, and obtained his Doctorate degree (Oncology) from Kunming Medical University. Having been introduced as a high-level talent by Yunnan Tumor Hospital, Dr. Chen is working at the PET-CT center of Yunnan Tumor Hospital as a resident doctor. Being a young scientist and doctor, his major research has been focusing on the early and precise diagnosis of tumor by PET-CT, molecular mechanisms of long non-coding RNAs in tumorigenesis, progression, migration, invasion, as well as the translational application concerned. Up to now, he has published more than ten papers in related fields. His research on the effects of long non-coding RNA GAS5 on melanoma migration and invasion intrigued other scientists working in Britain Keele University.
