About Me




Welcome to my Web site!

Hello, my name is Wen-Hui Hu (almost like When-Why Who?). Too many questions for me.     

I was born in a small town within Chongqing Municipal, a famous Southwestern city in the mountains, located at the middle of Long River in China. Before I was born, I had tasted very hot and spicy Chinese food, the world-known SiChuan Food. That's why I can not survive without spicy food.

At 10 years old, I was shocked by the sudden death of my grandpa, due to the lack of proper treatment to his stroke, which had been urging me to study very hard in a Medical College. I was the only one in the college who obtained the State Award of Excellent Students by Healthy Bureau. After graduation in 1982, I started my first job as a residency doctor, and three years' clinical experiences helped me a lot in my research career.

 I started my research career when I was enrolled into TMMU as a graduate student for Master of Science in 1985. I obtained systematic training in pathophysiology and traumatic surgery. In 1993, I successfully passed through the national-level admission examination for PhD candidates and enrolled into PUMC, the top one medical colleges in China. My three years' training for PhD related to molecular neurobiology focusing on pharmacology and neuroanatomy. In 1999, I initiated my postdoctoral training in USA, focusing on molecular biology, immunology and neuroscience. Therefore, my research training involves multiple disciplines and the extensive experiences have been building up my competition for career development.

For my previous accomplishments, please read the page of Contributions. For my current projects, please refer to Research Interests.

 Now I live in the Cherry Hill Township, South New Jersey, with my wife, Fang Li, and my daughter, Danielle.  We frequently discuss together current events and international news and watch TV or movie together.  I love traveling, whether it's across the country or to various places in the world. I enjoy all kinds of sports. I play soccer every weekend, and play cards with some friends at get-togethers over the holidays.  Sometimes, I play Chinese Chess or Go online.
