Dr. Ray Lu is currently working as an associate professor at Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of Guelph, Canada. He worked as an assistant professor at Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of Guelph, Canada (2001-8). He received his postgraduate degree from Beijing Institute for Cancer Research. He was the first to discover three novel human proteins that are involved in stress responses, namely Luman or CREB3 (also called LZIP), Zhangfei or CREBZF and Luman-recruiting factor (LRF) or CREBRF. He published various articles in international journals.
Dr. Ray Lu’s research is mainly focused on stress signaling mediated by Luman /CREB3, Zhangfei/CREBZF, and LRF/CREBZF and the underlying molecular mechanisms e.g., transcriptional regulation, protein translational modification and trafficking as well as its involvement in cellular processes or animal diseases (lipid metabolism/obesity, hypoxia/cancer, glucose metabolism/diabetes, and inflammation.
