Qingyun Zheng


Qingyun Zheng is an Assistant Professor, working in School of Physical Education, Henan University (HENU),China. She received her master’s and doctoral degree in Kinesiology from East China Normal University, China. During PhD study, she was funded by China Scholarship Council and studied for her PhD as a joint student in Professor Katarina Borer's laboratory (School of Kinesiology, University of Michigan) for 18 months. During this period she has finished her doctoral thesis. It are ” Effects of Mechanical loading and Hormones on Exercise Preventing Diabetic Osteoporosis in Postmenopausal Women with Type 2 Diabetes” and “Facilitation of osteogenic bone marker release in postmenopausal women by single, rather than spaced, mechanical loading or anabolic hormones”. Qingyun got the funding from China Scholarship Council and joined the Hankenson Laboratory in November 2019.

She is familiar with the exercise physiology, biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology, and other subjects. She is using advanced molecular genetic tools to identify and validate novel genetic regulators that exercise promotes bone formation.

When not working in the lab, Qingyun likes to spend her time to play tennis with her friends, and running, hiking, with her son-Fanchuan Liu.
