Dr. Ji-Hong Liu
Dr. Ji-Hong Liu graduated from Huazhong Agricultural University in 1990, and continued his master and PhD study there. In 1999, he earned his PhD degree and got the position in the same university. He has been working on cell engineering (protoplast fusion, chromosome doubling) from 1994-2003. Since 2003 he began to work on stress physiology and molecular biology in citrus. With the support provided by Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science, he visited the National Institute of Fruit Tree Science (Japan) from 2003 to 2014. At present he has three major research highlights in his lab, illustration of the physiological and molecular mechanisms underlying the stress tolerance, isolation and functional characterization of valuable genes involved in stress response, production of novel germplasm with enhanced stress tolerance through genetic engineering. So far, he has published more than 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals, including Plant Physiology, Plant Cell Environment, Journal of Experimental Botany. He acts as an academic editor for Gene, PLoS One, and Acta Physiologiae Plantarum.
