About Shunbin Ning

Dr. Ning is interested in the interaction between chronic viral infections and the host innate immune system in carcinogenesis, with the focus on type I interferons-mediated innate immune system, DNA damage response, autophagy, and oxidative stress. The long-term goal of these studies is to identify molecular targets for cancer immunotherapeutic and antiviral therapeutic applications. Ning's Lab has two well-equipped lab rooms with a total of approximate 1,000 sq, ft, and also has a separate cell culture room. Training opportunities are open for different levels of students who are interested in biomedical research.
