Dr. Yangnan Gu received his Ph.D. in Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology from Indiana University Bloomington in USA. He then moved to Duke University and Howard Hughes Medical Institute for his postdoc training. He is now an Assistant Professor at Tsinghua University in China. Dr. Gu’s study focuses on the molecular mechanism of one of the most important form of plant immune responses, termed effector-triggered immunity (ETI). His research led to the discovery of a key signaling pathway controlled by the nuclear pore complex downstream of NB-LRR immune receptors during ETI activation.
