Gao Shaorong received a Doctoral degree in Reproductive Biology from the Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He then performed postdoctoral studies in the UK and USA, focusing on somatic cell reprogramming. He returned to China in 2005 and worked as an investigator in the National Institute of Biological Sciences, Beijing. In 2013, he moved to Tongji University. Gao’s group is studying the molecular mechanisms underlying somatic cell reprogramming mediated by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) and defined transcription factors. The research in his lab has demonstrated that induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells reprogrammed directly from differentiated somatic cells by defined transcription factors can produce viable all-iPS mice through tetraploid complementation.
