Wenhui was born in Southeast China and then immigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area as a teenager. He attended the University of California, Davis under a Regent Scholarship, and graduated with highest honors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Wenhui subsequently pursued training in medicine and translational research in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at Tufts University. In the Laboratory of Dr. Charlotte Kuperwasser, Wenhui studied the regulation and function of transcription factors in triple-negative breast cancer with the goal of improving cancer diagnosis and therapeutics. Additionally, he pursued clinical research examining image-guided ablative therapy as a front-line treatment option for renal cancer under the mentorship of Dr. Ronald Arellano at Massachusetts General Hospital. Outside of his clinical and academic interests, Wenhui enjoys food, taking walks, listening to NPR, and spending time with family and friends.
