Scholarship Description:

The primary research focus of Dang lab (will start on June 1, 2024) lies in deciphering the intricate crosstalk between cancer metabolism and anti-cancer immunity, aiming to develop targeted therapies for clinical translation to combat cancer. We utilize biochemistry, molecular biology, bioinformatics, proteomics and animal models to investigate the involvement of metabolic associated protein post-translational modifications in regulating anti-cancer immunity. 

The ongoing projects are based on some of our previous works (Science, 2023, 380(6652):1372-1380; Science Translational Medicine, 2023, 15(725):eadh7668; Nature Communications, 2021, 12(1):5386; Cell Metabolism, 2019, 29(3):653-667; Cancer Discovery, 2019, 9(9):1306-1323). 

We invite applications from fresh PhD graduates or visiting scholars who share our research interests.

 Available Subjects:

Protein post-translational modifications in the regulation of anti-cancer immunity.

Eligibility criteria:
