Guo Jing

Research Fellow


Jing is a computation biologist. She works on Whole-Genome Sequencing (WGS) analysis in diabetic nephropathy and single-cell transcriptomics in kidney disease. She is part of The Diabetes Study in Nephropathy and other Microvascular Complications (DYNAMO) project, aimed at improving understanding of diabetic kidney disease to identify new potential treatments for kidney complications from diabetes.
