Lab: Immune microenvironment

Research Field

  • We are interested in the dissection of the critical role of macrophages in shaping immune responses in the tissue microenvironment, particularly including (i) how the tissue resident macrophages interact with the stromal cells and further promote their activation and differentiation, which would in turn impact the local immune response; (ii) the novel mechanisms underlying the regulation of inflammatory responses mediated by macrophages, which are involved in the local tissue damage or tumor development. Our research will provide insight into complex regulation of immune response and have important implications for immunotherapy development.

Personal Introduction

  • Zhiduo Liu received his bachelor's degree from Wuhan University in 2001, and his Ph.D. from Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010. He received the postdoctoral training in Laboratory of Systems Biology, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health from 2010 to 2016. In September 2016, Zhiduo Liu joined the Shanghai Institute of Immunology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. He is the principal investigator of the immune microenvironment team and the head of the imaging core facility of the Shanghai Institute of Immunology. Zhiduo Liu won the NIH "William E. Paul Prize" in 2016.
