Shengqing Stan Gu, PhD

Shengqing Gu received Ph.D. in Medical Biophysics at University of Toronto, where he performed research under the supervision of Dr. Benjamin Neel across the area of (1) protein tyrosine phosphatase signaling in hematopoiesis, and (2) computational modeling of ovarian cancer clinical course. Stan is currently a postdoctoral fellow co-supervised by Drs. Shirley Liu and Myles Brown. His research combines computational and experimental approaches to interrogate the interaction between cancer cells and the immune system, including (1) identifying new biomarkers for cancer immunotherapy response; (2) elucidating the epigenetic regulation of key components in cancer-T cell interaction; (3) characterizing the immune repertoire in cancer patients and healthy donors.
