Winston Liu

MD PhD Student

Winston received his BS in Bioengineering from the University of Maryland.  During his undergraduate training, he developed MRI analysis algorithms for neurodegenerative diseases at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.  As an MD/PhD student in the Bohórquez Laboratory, Winston is using organoid culture, single cell sequencing, and quantitative behavioral phenotyping to dissect a neural circuit that transduces sensory cues from gut luminal microbes to brain areas that control behavior.  Winston aims to become an independent physician-scientist focused on the interactions between our mind and other organ systems.
