Dr. Liang Shan

Dr. Shan joined the Department of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Washington University School of Medicine in September of 2017. He received his PhD from Johns Hopkins University where he studied HIV-1 latent infection and viral-specific CTL responses. He completed his postdoctoral training at Yale University. His postdoctoral research focused on developing and improving humanized mouse models for microbial infection and human innate and adaptive immune responses. Dr. Shan’s current research focuses on immune response to HIV-1 infection. His lab will use humanized mouse models to develop vaccination strategies to control HIV infection and target viral latent reservoir.
