Dr Xiangyu (Leon) Gao

Research student, School of Medicine

I started my MD at Cardiff China Medical Research Collaborative on 1st July 2016 after joining the team in 2014 as a sponsored researcher.

I am a surgeon and graduated from Peking University, China with an MD where I was introduced to some basic knowledge and techniques in biological science.

My research interests include predicating chemotherapy outcome and discovering new therapeutic target for patients.

I am currently working on a project to explore the clinical significance of S1P related to gene in chemotherapy resistance in gastric cancer patients. It is hoped this project will help to predict patients reactions to chemotherapy drugs.
