Research Interests

  • Understanding the immune evasion strategies used by the HIV-1 virus at the molecular and structural level

Dr. Jia is trained as a biochemist and structural biologist. He earned his Ph.D. in chemistry from Michigan State University under the guidance of Drs. James Geiger and Babak Borhan, where he investigated the wavelength regulation mechanism in primate color vision. Dr. Jia then moved to Dr. Yong Xiong’s lab at Yale University for his postdoctoral research and worked on elucidating how the HIV-1 virus disables antiviral mechanisms by forcing protein mistrafficking. He joined the department of chemistry and biochemistry at UMass Dartmouth in fall 2016. Research in his lab continues to focus on understanding the immune evasion strategies used by the HIV-1 virus at the molecular and structural level.
