Research interests:

The research in Prof. Gao Bin’s lab is focused on immune responses regulated by interaction between MHC class I molecule and T cell receptor, specifically, the assembly of MHC class I molecules with peptides of invaders, the molecular basis of antigen processing and the involvement of MHC class I-receptors interaction in auto-immune diseases. The lab is also engaged in development of immunotherapy by means of manipulation of MHC-TCR interaction and elucidation of functional-structural basis of immune macromolecules.

Awards & Honors:
 “Distinguished Overseas Chinese Scholar” named by CAS in 2005
