Dr. Rui earned his medical degree from Wannan Medical College and trained as an oncologist in Anhui Medical University in China. In 2006, after receiving his PhD from the Australian National University, Dr. Rui was awarded a CJ Martin Fellowship and pursued postdoctoral research in the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health, where he investigated the non-canonical mechanism (targeting histone H3 protein) of JAK2 kinase in lymphomagenesis and also identified the ubiquitin E3 ligase FBXO10 as a potential tumor suppressor in human lymphoma.

Dr. Rui continues to focus his research on lymphoma biology, emphasizing the molecular pathogenesis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Dr. Rui received an NIH ICTR KL2 Scholar award in 2013, and currently, is principal investigator on the NIH/NCI R01 grant entitled “Epigenetic Gene Regulation by JAK1 Kinase in Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma”. He has established many multi-discipline, cross-college collaborations on campus for his various research projects.
