I am teaching the following courses in Fudan University: Introduction to Biology, Essential Cell Biology, Advanced Cell Biology, and Modern Microscopy in Cell Biology. I use the integrated course design to improve student learning. I am using active learning and blended learning approaches in all the courses I teach. I am a firm believer in educational equality.

Since 2015, I becomes responsible for a top talent training program http://bio-elite.fudan.edu.cn/ in Fudan and plays an administrative role in the Tan School of Innovation http://tsi.fudan.edu.cn. I appreciate that authentic research experience is crucial for undergraduate science teaching, and science communication is a vital part of training future scientists.

In 2012, I started my laboratory in Fudan. Two Ph.D. students are expected to graduate at the end of 2018.

Since 2010, I have coded and maintained the paper link, serving tens of thousands academic users around the world. https://www.zhaowenxian.com is its mirror in China.

Between 2008-2011, I was working with Dr. Keith E Mostov in UCSF (2nd floor of Genentech Hall, Mission Bay Campus). My research focus was epithelial morphogenesis, which was supported by a Jane Coffin Childs Postdoctoral Fellowship.

Between 2003-2007, I was a graduate student in Dr. James E Bear's lab in UNC at Chapel Hill (2nd floor of Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center). My Ph.D. dissertation is about how "Coronin 1B coordinates actin dynamics in lamellipodia". I passed the defense on Dec 13, 2007; and I got my doctoral degree on May 11, 2008.

In 2003, I received my Bachelor's degree in Science from Fudan University. Dr. Weida Huang advised my undergraduate thesis.

My hometown is Haining, very close to Hangzhou and Shanghai, in the east part of China.
