Fei Song, MD, Research Scientist
I graduated from Harbin Medical University, School of Stromatology. I was certified as a prosthodontist after my residency in Beijing, China. I joined Dr. Schmidt’s research team at Columbia University Medical Center in 2001.
As part of the Diabetes Research Program at NYU Langone Medical Center, my research interests are (but not limited to): metabolism (physiology), metabolic syndrome/obesity/diabetes (pathology) and the role RAGE plays in multiple diabetes complications.
