Dr. Zang has a M.Med. from the Shanghai Second Medical University (now Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine) and a Ph.D. in Immunology from the University of Edinburgh with Rick M. Maizels. In the Maizels laboratory, he discovered one of the few cytokines in eukaryotic pathogens. He was then a research fellow with James P. Allison at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute of University of California at Berkeley and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. In the Allison laboratory, he discovered a new member of the T cell costimulatory/coinhibitory B7 family, B7x. He joined the faculty of Einstein in 2008. His lab is currently interested in new pathways for T cell costimulation and coinhibition from omics to animal models to patients.
