Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Hong Zheng's research focus is transplant immunology and developmental therapeutics for leukemia. Her study is dedicated to improve the understanding of the complex immune response involved in leukemia pathogenesis and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and subsequently develop effective leukemia therapeutics.

Currently, she is involved in developing early-phase clinical studies testing the safety and efficacy of immunotherapy for leukemia. Her laboratory studies involve targeting T-cell inhibitory mechanisms as a strategy to improve anti-leukemia immunity.

Clinical interests

Dr. Hong Zheng cares for patients with hematological malignancies, including leukemia and lymphoma, as well as patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
