Fuguo Jiang, Ph.D.


Principal Investigator
Assistant Professor of Cancer Biology

Fuguo Jiang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cancer Biology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He received his Bachelor degree of Medicine from Shandong University and M.Sc in Biophysics from Tsinghua University in China, and then a Ph.D. in Chemistry and Chemical Biology from Rutgers University where he worked with Dr. Joseph Marcotrigiano to characterize how the human innate immune receptor RIG-I specifically recognize viral RNAs. As a Damon Runyon Postdoctoral Fellow, he worked with Dr. Jennifer Doudna, a pioneer in CRISPR genome engineering from the UC-Berkeley, where he made great strides towards our understanding the fundamental mechanism of CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing system. In his independent lab at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Dr. Jiang continues to pioneer CRISPR mechanistic studies to further support its use for precise and accurate genetic control and therapeutic applications in many cancer diseases, as well as to study chromatin deregulation in cancer formation and development from a biochemical and structural perspective.    ​
