Shujin Wang started his bachelor education in Animal Science (Sichuan Agriculture University, China, 2008). After obtaining his bachelor’s degree, he started his master in Molecular Nutrition (Southwest University, China, 2012). In 2015, he received a sponsorship from the Chinese Scholarship Council and started his scientific career as a PhD student at the department of Genetics and Cell Biology under supervision of Miranda Nabben, PhD, Joost Luiken, PhD and prof. Jan Glatz. In the current project, he will further investigate the molecular mechanisms that trigger heart failure development in the diabetic heart and he will aim at finding new metabolic strategies to prevent this.
