Assistant Research Professor, Biodesign Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics
I have a strong background in immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and diagnostics, as represented by my Ph.D., which was jointly awarded by the National Centers for Nanoscience and Technology of China and Peking. These two institutions focus on cutting-edge interdisciplinary research in biomedical studies and nanotechnology. My Ph.D. research has a multidisciplinary span, covering hematopoietic stem cell biology and the development of platinum-nanoparticle-biomolecule enzymes. My current research has a similar focus on medical applications, covering epigenetic regulation of stem cells, innate immune signaling of viral infections and cancer, and T cell-mediated cancer immunotherapy, including mechanisms and applications of T cells in cancer immunotherapy, mutated antigen discovery, and cancer vaccine development. I am both ready and eager to begin my career as an independent researcher to further develop and promote my contributions to immunotherapy studies.
