3. Research Interests

    My research activities are lung fibrosis, especially coal workers’ pneumoconiosis and silicosis, and carbon disulfide (CS2) poisoning. The main research is in pathogenic mechanisms and individual susceptibility of coal workers’ pneumoconiosis which involve in population study, cell lines and animal models. Since 2008, six grants have been gained, in which four are from National Natural Science Foundation (NSFC) and two from Health Department of Jiangsu Province, and more than 70 papers as the correspond author or first author have been published including 26 papers which published in English Journals.
