Qing (Jane) Yu, M.S.


Lab Specialist

I have a background in Nursing as well as Computer Science. With more than 16 years of experience in biomedical research, I am very passionate about designing and executing experiments to address scientific questions. I like to accept new challenges, discover and solve problems, and love to work with a diverse group of people. A wide spectrum of experiences, including nursing, computer science and lab research, allow me to contribute to scientific endeavors with a unique perspective.

I love cooking, gardeingn, hiking and aerobic dancing. I have a son and a daughter, and live with my husband in beautiful Crozet, Virginia.
