Dr. Hua HAN, an expert in molecular developmental biology, is supported by many projects dedicated to promoting outstanding young researchers, including National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (2003). He enjoys the government special allowance distributed by the State Council of China, and won the "Sliver Star" in Science and Technology by the PLA General Department of Logistics.
He is now the Director and Professor of Department of Medical Genetics and Developmental Biology, School of Preclinical Education, Fourth Military Medical University. He is a member of the Expert Evaluation Group for the Department of Life Science, NSFC and the Vice-Chairman of Shaanxi Association for Medical Genetics. In addition, he is a member of the Expert Evaluation Group for Science and Technology Programs of Shaanxi Province and an expert in Chinese 973 Program.
He is engaged in scientific research on molecular mechanism underlying mammalian development. His research has been supported by grants from national science fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, from the Plan to Develop Cheung Kong Scholar Program and Innovative Groups, from National High Technology Research and Development Program of China (973 Program) Fund, and from Program For Outstanding Talents Across Century and National Eleventh Five-year Plan to tackle key problems in science and technology.
He was awarded the first prize in Science and Technology Programs of Shaanxi Province in 2007, the third prize for Chinese Medical Science and Technology Award in 2008 and one national patent in 2007. He has published 40 papers in international peer-reviewed journals, including Nature Immunology, Immunity, Hepatology and Nucleic. Acid. Res.
