Cyagen's Letter of Support for Research Grant Proposals
Letters of support (LOS) can express information that may be a deciding factor in awarding funding when grant proposals are otherwise similar in merit and quality. Additionally, the inclusion of LOS shows that the investigator has prepared a comprehensive proposal and is prepared to begin the project when it is awarded.
Including a letter of support (LOS) from Cyagen quickly establishes the feasibility of the animal model project, providing a competitive advantage for your grant proposal.

Cyagen's Animal Model Experts
Dr. Marvin Ouyang
Executive Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer
Dr. Marvin Ouyang has been dedicated to the development of genetically engineered rodent models for the past 20 years, developing hundreds of transgenic and KO/KI mouse/rat models for biomedical research and drug development. Previously, he served as the senior scientist of Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF), a scientist for U.S.-based Thios Pharmaceuticals , and worked for Taconic Biosciences as the leader of the Molecular Biology Department. So far, he has published many papers in high-impact academic journals such as PNAS and JBC. Technical services developed by Dr. Ouyang have been directly cited hundreds of times by top international journals, including Nature.
Dr. Steve Yu
Senior Vice President and Senior Scientist
Dr. Steve Yu has more than 20 years of experience in the field of genetically modified animal models from both R&D and management roles. As an internationally renowned expert in model animals and cell biology, Dr. Yu successively served in Yale School of Medicine and NYU Grossman School of Medicine, inGenious Targeting Laboratory (iTL), Applied StemCell (ASC) and other institutions in the field of genetically modified animal models. Currently, Dr. Yu is working for Cyagen as Senior Vice President and Senior Scientist, primarily responsible for the technical development of genetically modified animal model platforms. His research results have been published in high-impact journals such as Nat Immunol and Mol Cell Biol.
Dr. Rongli Zhang
Chief Scientist of Cyagen Surgical Disease Models
Dr. Rongli Zhang has more than 20 years of experience in creating mouse surgical models. Prior to Cyagen, Dr. Zhang was employed by China Academy of Chinese Medical Science (CACMS), Tsinghua University (THU), Peking University (PKU) and other internationally renowned academic institutions after earning his PhD. Since 2011, he has worked in Case Western Reserve University in the U.S. as both a research scientist and as director of the Cardiovascular Physiology Laboratory, where he leads the discovery of disease phenotypes in genetically engineered animals and preclinical drug development. In addition, he has done many preclinical pharmacology studies for domestic and worldwide pharmaceutical enterprises - helping these companies achieve successful product launches. Dr. Zhang has finished 10 projects during his work in China and took part in multiple fund programs in the U.S. supported by both the NIH (National Institutes of Health) and AHA (American Heart Association). He has 60 publications in SCI journals, with many articles published in high-impact academic journals (such as Nature, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Clinical Investigation, Circulation, Cell, Nature Communications, and Science Translational Medicine).
