About Hongbo Chi

Dr. Hongbo Chi is an immunologist with a long-standing interest in immune signaling and cell metabolism. His laboratory has made important discoveries in understanding the principle of metabolic reprogramming for immune cell fate, state and tolerance, including the roles of metabolic programs, signaling pathways, and systems-level regulatory networks in basic T cell and dendritic cell biology and antitumor immunity. His work is highly regarded and widely referenced, earning him a place on the 2020 Highly Cited Researchers list. Honored by his graduate alma mater, University of Rochester, with their 2018 Alumni Achievement Award, Dr. Chi continues his innovative quest for fundamental discovery and translational initiative as a highly collaborative member of the Immunology Department and St. Jude community.
