About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Gao, George F.
Location Chinese Academy of Sciences
Primary Field Animal, Nutritional and Applied Microbial Sciences
Secondary Field Microbial Biology
 Research Interests
Gao's research interests include virus entry/release mechanism and host immune receptor recognition. His group research is mainly focusing on the virus entry and release, esp. influenza virus interspecies transmission (host jump), structure-based drug-design and structural immunology. He is also interested in virus ecology, esp. the relationship between influenza virus and migratory birds or live poultry markets and the bat-derived virus ecology and molecular biology. He has so far published over 500 peer-reviewed scientific papers and 20 books or book chapters, with an H-index of 70 (till April, 2019). His research has recently expanded on public health policy and global health strategy. His heroic roles in fighting against Ebola outbreak in 2014 by spending two months (between September to November) during the peak outbreak in Sierra Leone, leading a China Mobile Test Laboratory, is highly appreciated worldwide. Gao's contribution in science is not only for basic life/medical sciences but also for clinical-related ~preventive medical sciences and public health, which can be reflected from his "grand-slam" publications in 5 top-niche scientific journals, i.e., Nature, Science, Cell, The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine.
