Jianying Yang

Dr. Jianying YANG studied Bioscience and Biotechnology at Zhejiang University in China. After obtaining his Ph.D. from Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry, he pursued his postdoctoral research with Prof. Roy Mariuzza at CARB (Center for Advanced Research in Biotechnology, University of Maryland, USA), to study the affinity maturation and intramolecular cooperativity in protein-protein interaction using structural biology and biophysical approaches. In 2003, he moved to Germany to work with Prof. Michael Reth at Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE, Freiburg, Germany), to study the organization of B cell receptor. Since 2010, he is a project leader in the Department of Molecular immunology at MPI-IE, and an associate member of Centre for Biological Signalling Studies (Bioss) of the University of Freiburg. Research of the group of Dr. Jianying YANG is currently focusing on deciphering the BCR signaling, by developing novel synthetic biology tools. With intensive national and international collaborations, the group is also applying advanced imaging techniques to study the dynamics and regulation of BCR oligomers and BCR-coreceptor interaction on cell surface.

As part of his Fellowship, Jianying Yang is working on the project In vivo visualizing the dynamics of cytokine-targeting cells, together with his collaborator Mei Li.
