Qi Long Lu, MD, PhD
McColl-Lockwood Laboratory for Muscular Dystrophy Research
501 Billingsley Road
Charlotte, North Carolina, United States
Qi Long Lu is the Director of McColl-Lockwood Laboratory for Muscular Dystrophy Research and Adjunct Professor at University of North Carolina. He completed his MD and MS degree from Shanghai Second Medical University and PhD from University of London.
Dr. Lu’s main interests are gene therapy, oligonucleotide therapy and read-through strategy for muscular dystrophies with a goal to treat limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) type 2I. Dr. Lu and his group have experimented several physical (electroporation, ultrasound) and chemical methods (pluronic polymers and microbubbles) to enhance gene delivery into muscle. Currently, natural and synthetic polymers are being examined and significant progress has been made for enhanced delivery of transgenes in both cell culture and animal models in vivo.
