Personal profile

Scholarly biography

Guan completed her first degree in Biology (2006) at Shandong Normal University, Shandong, China. She obtained a master's degree in Biomedical Sciences (2007) followed by a PhD in Integrated Biology (2013) at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. During and following her PhD training, she focused on the application of DNA microarray and RNA-seq in genomic profiling of elite sprint athletes of West African and East Asian origins and transcriptomic profiling of blood doping, at Professor Yannis Pitsiladis's lab at the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, University of Glasgow (Nov. 2009 - Apr. 2014) and then at the School of Sport and Service Management, University of Brighton (Jun. 2014 - Aug. 2020). She currently focuses on tackling the global challenges faced by developing countries for sustainable development of good health aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-being), under the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) funding scheme at Brighton (Sep. 2020 - present). Her work aims at generating knowledge and facilitating the implementation of interventions that can be of use in global and public health, as well as understanding public health emergencies such as COVID-19, bearing in mind the importance of integrating biomedical sciences and social sciences to narrow down the knowledge gap between science and practice. 

Research interests
