Dr. Hongbo Chi Laboratory

Postdoctoral Fellowships are available in the laboratory of Dr. Hongbo Chi in the Department of Immunology, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org/chi), to investigate cell metabolism of the immune system (immunometabolism) and its implications in cancer and other diseases. We are particularly interested in understanding the signaling network and metabolic programs mediated by mTOR, Hippo and additional pathways in basic T cell and dendritic cell biology. We also investigate mechanisms of tumor immunity and immunotherapy and autoimmune disorders. The experimental models include genetically-modified mice and primary immune cells derived from these mice, as well as in vitro systems to explore signaling, metabolic, transcriptional and epigenetic regulation. Moreover, we use interdisciplinary strategies by integrating these immunological approaches with cutting-edge systems biology tools including single-cell transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and network reconstruction.
