CURRENT POSITION:
Lecturer and Research Associate(1992-present), Department of immunology, The=
 First
Military Medical University, GuangZhou, China.

RESEARCH PROGRAMS:

1. Research Associate, Department of Immunology, The First Military Medical=
 University,
GuangZhou, P.R.China, 1997-Present=20
Studying the project regarding the expression of MAGE-1-epitope-HAL-A1=
 fusion proteins.
A DNA construct in which a cDNA fragment encoding the melanoma epitope=
 MAGE-1 was
inserted between sequences encoding the leader and the HLA-A1 protein.=
 Identified=20
recombinant plasmids by restriction enzyme analysis, Southern blot, PCR and=
 sequence,=20
transformed E. Coli strain BL21 and tumor cell line with correct MAGE=
 -1-epitope-HAL-A1
vector to express the recombinant proteins; extracted and purified these=
 proteins by gel
filtration and column chromatography,  tested the recombinant protein=
 antigenicity by
ELISA and immunogenicity by animal experiment. Studying MAGE-1 recognition=
 by
specific CTL and cancer immunotherapy in clinic protocol.

2. Research Associate, Department of Pathophysiology, SUN YAT-SEN University=
 of
Medical Sciences, GuangZhou,China, 8/1994-12/96
The these study focuses on the investigation of the function and mechanism=
 of genetically
modified tumor cells with antisense insulin-like growth factor-I (antisense=
 IGF-I) as tumor
vaccines to stimulate and induce immune response. The approach/methods:=
 transiently or
permanently transfect tumor cells by lipofectin, select and screen clone s=
 by limited=20
dilution and drug select, analysis of RNA and DNA[molecular hybridization:=
 Northern and
Southern], the expression of MHC antigens(class I and class II) confirmed by=
 flow
cytometry FACS, determining CEA and AFP levels of human hepatocellular=
 carcinoma cells
after gene transfer by radioimmunoassay(RIA), analyze LAK cell mediated=
 cytotoxicity by
51-Chrome release assay. In vivo animal study, immunize mice with the tumor=
 vaccines
and gene therapy with antisense IGF-I plasmid in established-tumor mice for=
 the measurement=20
of animal survival.

3. Research Associate, Department of Immunology, The First Military Medical=
 University,=20
GuangZhou, P.R.China, 8/1992-9/1993
The research of T cell vaccination against allotransplation reaction.=
 Established the heart
transplation model at ear in mice for host-versus-graft reaction, T cell=
 vaccination was made
from the spleen cells of BALB/C (H-2d) mice, which were induced by Con A or=
 CD3
McAb were challenged with the allologous specific antigens [C57BL/6(H-2b)]=
 spleen cells.
Analyzed that the  phenotype(CD4+and CD8+) of T cell vaccination using flow=
 cytometry
(FACS440). The heart survival at ear were measured by electrocardiograph.

4. Assistant Researcher, Department of Pathophysiology,  GuangDong Medical=
 University,
ZhanJiang, China, 9/1989-7/92
Involved in studying tumor immunology as related to the pathogenesis of=
 infectious diseases=20
(EB virus related nasopharyngeal carcinoma, NPC). Extracted EBV by larger=
 scale culture
of B95-8 and Raji cells; EBV induce the transformation of PBMC; studying the=
 growth of
CNE-2Z and RAJI cells in presence of cytokines (rhIFN and rhIL-2). Using the=
 methods=20
of MTT, ELISA for the measurement of cytokines (including TNF, IFN and IL-2)=
 from NPC
patients.

5.Assistant Researcher, Department of Immunology, The First Military Medical=
 University,
GuangZhou, P.R.China, 8/1980-9/88
* Highly skilled in all aspects of microbiology(include: culture,=
 inoculation and biochemistry=20
analysis of bacterium and virus), with special emphasis on immunology=
 (include: general
technology about cellular and humoral immunology, cell culture, ELISA,
immunolfluorescence, monoclonal antibody, immunocytochemistry    =20

* Extensively engaged in the research of tumor immunology, set up the tumor=
 metastasis
model of animal, extract the surface antigen of tumor cell, measurement of=
 tumor metastasis
tissue

* Participated in the research of antigen combining cell bring Ehrilich=
 ascites carcinoma host=20
and human tumor therapy by using LAK cell and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes=
 in clinic protocol

* Studying acupuncture on the effect of spontaneous lung metastasis from=
 Uterine cervix cancer
U14 in mice
