Dr. Dong is originally from China and received his Ph.D in Biology from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. Dr. Dong brings to UTSW a strong background in innate immunity and virology. He currently specializes in unraveling the molecular mechanisms of host-pathogens interaction, particularly the role of autophagy in innate immunity against intracellular pathogens. Dr. Dong’s interests outside of medicine include his family, reading, history and arts.
