Dr. Pi got her BS degree from Department of Pharmacy, National Taiwan University. She then did her Ph.D. study in Dr. Stanley Fields’s laboratory in Stony Brook University. Her study focus on the signal transduction in yeast mating pathway. She did her postdoc training in study of developmental biology in Dr. Cheng-Ting Chien’s laboratory in Institute of Molecular Biology, Academia sinica. She joined the Department of Biomedical Science, Chang Gung University in 2004.
皮老師畢業於台大藥學系（學士）。而後前往 美國紐約石溪大學 – 生化學系 攻讀博士，在 Dr. Stanley Fields 的實驗室做博士研究。博士時期主要是以酵母菌為模式來研究訊息傳導如何活化基因轉錄，並同時學習 yeast two hybrid system。
During development, neural competence is conferred and maintained by integrating spatial and temporal regulations. The Drosophila sensory bristles that detect mechanical and chemical stimulations are arranged in stereotypical positions. [...]
Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) proneural proteins promote neurogenesis through transcriptional regulation. Although much is known about the tissue-specific regulation of proneural gene expression, how proneural proteins [...]
