About the speaker:
Huabin Li is currently a faculty member in Shanghai Institute of Immunology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. He earned his PhD degree in 2011 at Rutgers University. After a short period of postdoctoral research experience (2011-2012) at Rutgers University, he joined Professor Richard Flavell’s lab in Yale University in 2012, where he mainly focused on the epigenetic mechanism study in immune systems, with a particular interest in the mechanism and functional impact of RNA modification in immune response. Through large-scale screening of key regulators in immune response, he wishes to reveal novel mechanisms and develop new drugs for immune diseases. Recently he published two important first author/co-first author articles in the Nature, Science magazines, and made significant impact in the field.
