Research Field: Autoimmunity and Immune Intervention

Personal Introduction

  • Hong Nie, Principal Investigator. She obtained B.S. degree in 1993, M.S. degree in 1996, and Ph.D. degree in 2004 from Shanghai Second Medical University. Since 1996, she has served as a teaching assistant, research assistant, research associate, and research fellow of Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. She is a Principal Investigator of Shanghai Institute of Immunology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine since 2016. The main research direction is the pathogenesis and immune intervention of autoimmune diseases. In recent years, her research field also involved the mechanism study of tumorigenesis and the exploration of new therapeutic targets. The research papers were published on academic journals, such as Theranostics, Immunology, Nature Medicine.
