Research Interest: How hosts respond to the challenges of pathogens.

My English name is Phoenix, an unusual name, right? I like the meaning of this word: never die—I can never be defeated by failure. So, that’s me, an optimistic boy who always has a smile on his face.

My real name is Yuxuan Miao, and I come from China. After spending four years as a college student in Beijing, I went to the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology at Chinese Academy of Sciences to do research. My major research interest is how hosts respond to the challenge of pathogens. I hope my persistence and passion towards science will help me to make my own contribution to the global health of the entire human race.

Outside the lab, I am a huge fan of soccer. I played for my school team of my high school and the department of my college, and I chose Manchester United as my dream team which I will spend my whole lifetime to support them. The representative color of Man United is bright red. It’s just like my life, always full of passion, for both science and life!
