About the speakerProfessor Tang got his bachelor of medicine at Norman Bethune Health Science Center of Jilin University in 2000. After completing a Ph. D. program in XiangYa School of Medicine, Central South University, he conducted a postdoctoral research at University of Pittsburgh until 2010, and now is a professor Department of Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. His work consists of designing and conducting molecular, cellular, and animal studies to understand the mechanism of cell death (necroptosis, pyroptosis, ferroptosis, and alkaliptosis) and its pathophysiological role in inflammation-associated diseases (e.g., infection, sterile inflammation, and cancer). Since coming to the University of Pittsburgh in 2007, he has collaborated with Drs. Herbert Zeh and Rui Kang in the Department of Surgery. His major findings on cell death and inflammation have been presented at national and international meetings and have been published in multiple research and review articles in journals such as Cell

Metabolism, Science Translational Medicine, Journal of Cell Biology, PNAS, Cancer Research, Oncogene, Cell Death & Differentiation, Nature Immunology, Clinical Cancer Research, Nature Communications, Gastroenterology, and Autophagy. In summary, he has a demonstrated record of successful and productive research projects in the field of cell death and pancreatic cancer.
