Maggie is a research technician/ lab manager. Her research is focusing on making useful transgenic zebrafish. These transgenic fish are used to report or conditionally regulate gene expression of shh pathway. Zebrafish has relative shorter lifespan. It only takes 3 months for them to be mature and ready for spawning.  They are small and transparent. All these reasons make them perfect for making transgenic animals. She is also working on understanding how shh and other signal pathways regulate embryonic pituitary development.
She has B.S. from China Medical University, Taiwan,  and M.S .from University of Arizona.
