Who are we?

We are scientists at Shenzhen Bay Laboratory (SZBL) in Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province,  China!


SZBL is a newly established Guangdong Provincial Laboratory located in the heart of Guandong - Hongkong - Macau Great Bay Area. Jointly launched by the City of Shenzhen and Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School, SZBL is supported by the Shenzhen City with an initial five-year budget of ~2 billion US$.


SZBL aims to create advanced research platforms, convene high-end talents and drive leading-edge discoveries in frontier and applied areas of bio-medicine. SZBL aspires to be a hub for world-class research at the forefront of science and innovation, spurring novel solutions to  the grand issues challenging mankind!

What do we study?

The Deng laboratory is interested in ​cell cycle regulation, DNA replication, DNA damage and repair, and genome instability. We use a combination of cutting-edge techniques such as in vitro  biochemical reconstitution, genome engineering, high throughput live-cell imaging, genome sequencing and so forth, to address how cells coordinate growth and division under normal and pathological conditions such as cancer.
