    About This Team Member

    Rong earned her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Science from China Pharmaceutical University in 2004 and is currently a professor at Peking University. Her  research focuses on PEG-conjugated dendrimers as in-vitro and in-vivo DNA and RNA delivery vectors. She  is collaborating with our group on the endocytosis mechanism of polycationic dendrimer-DNA polyplexes using biochemistry techniques to up- or down-regulate some crucial receptors or proteins, which are related to internalization pathways of the polyplexes.
