Shengping Hu
Professor, Molecular Biology and Forensic Genetics
Tongji Medical University, China


Dr. Shengping Hu earned her MD from Tongji Medical University, China and PhD from Sydney University, Australia, and completed her postdoctoral training at Harvard and Boston University Medical Schools. She joined Shantou University Medical College of China in 1999 and is currently a faculty member and professor in molecular biology and forensic genetics. The interest of her laboratory is to investigate human DNA polymorphism in genetic susceptibility to cancers, particularly polymorphisms of HLA and nasopharyngeal and esophageal carcinomas, two cancers with high prevalence in certain areas in south China. She is state-certified for DNA parentage testing and her laboratory also embarks on research related to the forensic molecular genetics. She has served as a grant reviewer for the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and several other grant provider bodies, and a referee for several prestigious journals, including Human Immunology, Tissue Antigens, Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, and for the Bentham Science Publishers.

Research Interest

Dr. Shengping Hu research interests include Human DNA polymorphisms (HLA, STRs, mtDNA) in genetic susceptibility to cancers, and its applications in forensic and population genetics.
