Professor Jianbo Sun
Associate Editor: Professor Jianbo Sun
Dr. Sun is a Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Guanghua School of Stomatology at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou. The two main interests of Dr. Sun's lab are molecular mechanism of promoting and suppressing immune response by B cells, and the application of immunotherapy drugs immobilized by magnetic nanoparticles in cancer prevention and precision treatment.
Dr. Sun received his Ph.D in Microbiology and Nanomedicine in 2007 in China Agricultural University after studing the high yield technology, biocompatibility and application of magnetosomes as nano drug carriers in tumor therapy. He obtained his first postdoctoral training in Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from 2008 to 2011. He studied there the mechanistic characterizations and functions of transcriptional factor and phosphatase Eya1 and its cofactors Six1, Sox2 and AthoI during the development and growth of vertebrate inner ear and kidney as well as in sensory neurogenesis. Then he moved to the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University. There, he served as Postdoctoral Research Scientist and then Associate Research Scientist. He studied molecular mechanism of regulatory B cell biogenesis and function, and the mechanism of antibody diversification, genomic instability and oncogenesis resulted from AID and its cofactors such as RNA Exosome, RNA polymerase II and others.
Dr. Sun has 3 authorized patents, 2 book chapters, and 17 papers published in prestigious journals. And his publications are cited more than 450. Dr. Sun also serves as editor for The Internet Journal of Medical Informatics, guest editor for Bio-Medical Materials and Engineering, Technology Program Chair of The 3rd and 4th International Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology (iCBEB 2014 and 2015), and Reviewer for 8 reputable journals.
