Bin Gu PhD


Bin Gu, Ph.D. received his BS degree in Bio-technology and his Ph.D. degree in Cell Biology from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China. He completed postdoctoral training at the Hospital for Sick Children in Canada from 2013 to 2020 in the Program of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology. He is now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology within the College of Human Medicine.


The focus of my research is investigating the molecular mechanisms regulating early embryo development, infertility and genetic disease. My Lab develop new genome engineering technology to generate mouse models for complex mutations to model human diseases. We study them use cutting-edge technologies, such as live imaging and in-vivo genetic engineering, to understand the mechanism and develop new treatments for human diseases.
