Lei Jiang received his bachelor's degree from Wuhan University, and then completed his Ph.D. at Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, where he received the Dean Award and Unilever Scholarship, and he was also honored as a Merit student.
After his postdoctoral training in University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, he joined City of Hope as an assistant professor in the department of Molecular & Cellular Endocrinology. During his research training, Dr. Jiang has had several high-profile publications in Nature, Nature Cell Biology, Cell, Molecular Cell, Hepatology, PNAS and Metabolic Engineering. His research interest is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms regulating nutrient homeostasis during the development and progress of metabolic diseases such as diabetes and cancer.
His research particularly focuses on the compartmentalized central carbon metabolism (glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation) under pathological conditions, through the application of the leading- edge mass spec based metabolic tracing and systemic bioengineering.
