Dr. Bin Zhang is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in Hematology and Medical Oncology, Cancer Therapy & Research Center, at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas. Dr. Zhang received his M.D. from West China University of Medical Science, and his Ph.D. from the National Laboratory of Experimental Hematology, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College. He was further well-trained at the University of Chicago, supported by a highly competitive postdoctoral fellowship from The Cancer Research Institute (New York).

The long-term goal is to develop immunotherapeutic strategies that will mobilize the patient’s own immune system to recognize tumor cells and eliminate them.
