【December 9, 2016】 Fourth Research Progress Meeting of Beijing Joint Laboratories

On December 9 the fourth Research Progress Meeting of Beijing Joint Laboratories was held at the Institute of Biophysics (IBP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), attended by Ms. Kiyomi Ueda (General Manager; IMSUT) and Mr. Isao Uehara (Manager; Research Support Division, IMSUT) during their visit to the Beijing office, along with Dr. Yasushi Kawaguchi from IMSUT. After Dr. Hongyun Wang, Ms. Jiping Song, and Ms. Qingling Du of IBP reported the progress in studies of HIV-1 and dengue viruses, Mr. Kai Liu and Ms. Xialin Xie of IM shared with the participants the research progress in identification of host factors contributing to latent HIV-1 infection and the genome editing in THP-1 cells. On the next day the visitors from IMSUT and the IMSUT scientists working in the joint-labs had a lunch meeting with Dr. George Fu Gao (Academician of CAS).

【June 29, 2015】 First Research Progress Meeting of Beijing Joint Laboratories

The first Research Progress Meeting of Beijing Joint Laboratories was held at the Institute of Microbiology (IM), Chinese Academy of Sciences, in the presence of Drs. Yasushi Kawaguchi, Jun-ichiro Inoue, and Kunito Yoshiike from the IMSUT, Tokyo. Dr. Jin Gohda (Senior Assistant Professor, IM) reported his research progress on host factors related with latent HIV-1 infection; and Dr. Lijun Gu (Project Researcher, IM) shared with the participants her research progress of the co-receptor usage of prevailing HIV-1 in China. After that, Mr. Dehua Liu (Research Assistant, Institute of Biophysics (IBP)) shared the progress in searching for peptide that inhibits dengue-virus induced cell fusion; and Ms. Hongyun Wang (Research Assistant, IBP) reported on studies of peptides of inhibiting HIV-1 induced cell fusion.
Because this was the first meeting after launching the new project, all the participants were introduced before presentation. Mr. Kai Ryu (Research Assistant, IM), Ms. Rui Zhang (Research Assistant, IBP), and Ms. Weiwei Liu (Research Assistant, IBP) were introduced and welcomed as new members to the respective institutes. The participants were also informed that Mr. Dehua Liu (Research Assistant, IBP) and Mr. Xiao Li (Research Assistant, IBP) are leaving their positions soon.
