Gang Xiao, Ph.D.

Gang Xiao, Ph.D., received his doctoral degree at Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His previous work was supervised by Dr. Xiaolong Liu and focused on regulation of checkpoint molecule PD-1 during T cell anti-tumor immune responses and thymocyte development.
During his postdoctoral training with Markus Müschen, M.D., Ph.D., at the University of California, San Francisco, Dr. Xiao’s research was mainly focused on the role of the inhibitory phosphatase PP2A in the regulation of glucose metabolism, redox homeostasis and oncogenic signaling in normal B cell development, and B cell leukemia and lymphoma.
Dr. Xiao joined the Department of Systems Biology at Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope in 2017 and is an assistant research professor in the Division of Epigenetic and Transcriptional Engineering.
