Zhengfan Jiang

Zhengfan Jiang is a Peking-Tsinghua Center for Life Sciences (CLS) Investigator, a tenured full professor and Vice Dean of the School of Life Sciences (SLS) at Peking University (PKU). He works on innate immunity and related cell signaling and, more specifically, on the molecular mechanisms of host defense against virus infection. His lab has identified ERIS which is also named STING and MITA and provided molecular insights into the coordination among viral infection-induced cytokine production, inflammation and apoptosis. Recently, his lab has identified Mn2+ as a critical component required for antiviral innate immunity by activating the cGAS-STING pathway. He has been honored to the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars, China and the Cheung Kong Scholar and tenured full professor at PKU.
