Jie Qiao is Academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, Director of Peking University Third Hospital. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Qiao lead the Hubei medical aid team of Peking University which was responsible for critical and maternal care, and as early as February 2020, she wrote in The Lancet about the impact of COVID-19 on maternal and neonatal health (read here). Her own research focuses on the molecular mechanism of human gametogenesis and embryo development, infertility pathology and clinical treatments, the protection and preservation of female fertility, as well as developing new pre-implantation diagnosis methods. She has led teams to achieve a number of technical and theoretical breakthroughs in the systematic study of human embryonic development and has made many landmark contributions to the development of reproductive medicine.
This event is presented by the Harvard China Health Partnership as part of the ongoing series, China and Global Experience with COVID-19, and is co-sponsored by the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies.
