Adolfo García-Sastre

New York
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Dr. García-Sastre is Professor in the Departments of Microbiology and Medicine and in the Tisch Cancer Center at Icahn School of Medicine Mount Sinai (ISMMS) in New York. He is also Director of the Global Health and Emerging Pathogens Institute at ISMMS. For the past 30 years, his research interest has been focused on the molecular biology, virus-host interactions, innate immunity and pathogenesis of influenza viruses and several other RNA viruses, as well as on the development of new vaccines and antivirals. He has more than 600 peer-reviewed publications in these areas of research. He has been President of the International Society for Vaccines in 2014-2015. In 2017, he has been elected a fellow of the Royal Academy of Pharmacy in Spain. In 2019, he was recognized with a Honorary Doctor Degree from the University of Burgos, Spain. Also in 2019, he was elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences and of the National Academy of Inventors.

Dong-yan Jin

Dong-Yan Jin did his PhD study with Prof. Yun-De Hou at the State Key Laboratory for Molecular Virology in Beijing in 1986-1991. He received postdoctoral training with Dr. Kuan-Teh Jeang at the Laboratory of Molecular Microbiology at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of NIH in 1994-1999. He joined the University of Hong Kong in 1999 and is now Clare and Lawrence Fok Professor working in the School of Biomedical Sciences. Two key issues that Prof. Jin’s team is addressing concern viral oncogenesis and innate antiviral immune response. They use a combination of biochemical and genetic approaches to conduct basic research with the aim of applying the knowledge gained to prevention and control of human diseases. Their previous work has broken new grounds to understand how viruses cause abnormal division of cells, promote cell survival and evade host innate immunity. In his study of a viral oncogenic protein named Tax produced by human T-cell leukemia virus type 1, which causes a highly lethal blood cancer known as adult T-cell leukemia, he identified in 1998 a cellular protein named MAD1, a key component of the mitotic checkpoint. In 2011, his group found that the virus sensor RIG-I needs an RNA-binding protein partner called PACT to initiate and sustain innate antiviral immune response. In 2008-2020, they also identified and characterized novel viral interferon antagonists and inflammasome activators in SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV. Their findings have unraveled novel disease mechanisms, revealing new targets and strategies for precision treatment. Therefore, they might impact future practice of medicine. He is the recipient of numerous awards including a National Natural Science Award of China (2001), a Scholar Award from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (2001-2006), a New Foreign Investigator Award from GRIP program of NIH (2002-2007) and a Croucher Senior Research Fellowship (2014). He was elected to American Academy of Microbiology in 2020. He is on the Editorial Board of Journal of Virology, Retrovirology, Journal of Leukocyte Biology and Nucleic Acid Therapeutics. He is a Reviewing editor of Emerging Microbes and Infections, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Cell and Bioscience, official journal of the Society for Chinese Bioscientists in America, and Editor of Virus Research.
