On behalf of the school, Prof. HUANG Ailong executed a contract with Academician HAN Jiahuai and issued a letter of appointment. Academician HAN and Secretary LI Leiting jointly unveiled the Workstation of Immune Cell Signal Transduction.
After the unveiling ceremony, Academician HAN made an academic report entitled ‘Activation of STAND ATPase, a checkpoint for inflammasome signaling’.
HAN Jiahuai, a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences since 2013 and director of the Department of Medicine and Life Sciences at Xiamen University, is actively involved in researching innate immune cell signal transduction. His research focuses on studying the molecular, cellular, and animal levels of stress inflammatory response signal pathways and their role in inflammation-related lesions. He is widely recognized as an authority on p38, an evolutionarily conserved stress signaling pathway, and has made significant contributions to the study of cell necrosis. To date, he has published over 340 papers in prestigious international academic journals, including more than 50 articles in CNS and its sub-journals. Additionally, he holds numerous patents in China and the United States. His work has been cited over 64,000 times with one paper having a citation rate exceeding 3500 times.
