Biography & Introduction
Hong Tang, PhD, Professor of Molecular Immunology, Director of Center for Infection and Immunology. My group studies immune responses to viral infections （coronavirus, hepatitis viruses）, especially how T cells regulate the inflammatory response during the acute phase of infection.
