In the meantime, he summarizes essential information after studying research papers related to our topic.
LingYue Zhang Lynn
-As a dedicated member of the team, Lynn spent most of the time helping with the experiments. She had learned many experimenting skills through the project, and she was always willing to contribute in experiments. Besides, Lynn worked hard by recording every step her team had done while experimenting. It made not only her but also her teammates more convenient to review and do research after lab work. As Lynn is proficient in drawing, Lynn helped other teammates think about ideas and drew sketches for the team poster. She also devoted herself to sketching graphs of the experimenting process. Lynn was an earnest and obedient teammate.
-Haoran Lin is responsible for survey analysis as well as writing reports on all of our group meetings. When interviewing with experts, he also helped to record their answers into a word document. In terms of wiki, he leads Yue Yu and Haohan Zhang to complete the integrated human practice part. Moreover, he was the host for our lecture at Xuhui’s health center, and also contributed to the macroenvironment part of our business plan.
-Yue Yu is responsible for composing WeChat articles as well as conducting several expert interviews online. In terms of wiki, along with Lin Haoran and Zhang Haohan, the three of them wrote everything about the integrated human practice part. She has also been in part in writing the business plan, including economic environment and technical factors. Moreover, she engaged in completing the PowerPoint slides and team presentations.
-Yidan Zhang is in charge of design the layout of the Home of Wiki and writes the execution part of the business plan. She is also responsible for shooting promotional videos and making video clips. She made an online crowdfunding campaign and raised a lot of money for our team. She takes charge of managing the WeChat group of customers, launching group regulation, and campaigns to get customers actively involved in our presentations.
-As the leader of the dry team, Xihe took most of the administrative work such as allocating duties to team members, helping others' work, or arranging collaborations with other teams. She was also responsible for communicating between her team members and the lab team. She contributed to the editing of wiki and business plans, the publicity of the scientific research, and the accomplishment of team video and team presentation. Meanwhile, she engaged in the design of the team logo and related merchandising products.
Helen Huang contributed to the biology laboratory work, and also participated in the design of the Wiki website, including designing the home page and writing the content, where she helped share information about the chronic kidney disease（CKD） and our project. She also played a crucial role in working in the lab, where she helped duplicating DNA and extracting plasmid.
Boyi (Lily) Li works in the bio team. She experiments on the cells and DNA using PCR. What's more, she designs the home page of the wiki.
Haohan Zhang contributed to the human practice part of the project by composing articles and posting them online to attract the public's attention to Synthesise Biology and Chronic Kidney Disease. Also, he cooperated with his teammates to work on the business plan, specifically on the aspect of public awareness of Chronic Kidney Disease and interviews of experts.
Yumeng Jiang contributed to the design of Wiki website, including collecting the information of each teammate. Besides, she wrote the marketing strategy in the business plan and made an article about the introduction of Chronic Kidney Diseases (CKD), including writing something about the symptoms of Chronic Kidney Diseases (CKD) and the harm of Chronic Kidney Diseases (CDK).
