Xuezi Tian

PhD student

Curriculum vitae

I was born in 1993 in Zhejiang, China. I gained a Bachelor and Master degree at Beijing Capital Medical University with 21 months of internship in Beijing Tongren Hospital and 33 months of residence experience in Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital. In this period, my clinical research mainly focused on reproduction, such as diminished ovarian reserve and endometriosis. Aiming to acquire more laboratory research experience, currently I’m pursuing a PhD at the LUMC under the guidance of Dr. Marie-Louise van der Hoorn and Dr. Michael Eikmans. Thereby the work and interests are centered on the immune mechanism of oocyte donation pregnancy, especially the composition and function of macrophages. For this research I am applying or intend to apply immunochemistry, flow cytometry, and CyTof.
