Projects per year
Professor Jun Wei is a highly experienced medical scientist who has carried out medical research in the fields of medical genetics, pathophysiology, immunology and neuroscience for more than 30 years. His current research interests are to investigate immunogenetic mechanism of human diseases. This includes looking at why COVID-19 seems more severe in patients with diabetes and tracking of long-COVID symptoms to begin to identify the underlying mechanisms and inflammatory system responses.
