Lieping Chen is the United Technologies Corporation Professor in Cancer Research and Professor of Immunobiology, of Dermatology and of Medcine (Medical Oncology);Co-Director, Cancer Immunology Program at Yale Cancer Center.

 

With his pioneering research on tumor immunotherapy, Dr. Lieping Chen has revolutionized cancer treatment and jump-started the modern era of cancer immunotherapy. His work laid the foundation for the development for all immune checkpoint inhibitors that arecurrently approved for patient treatment, including anti-CTLA4, anti-PD-1 and anti-PD-L1 antibodies.  These have saved many lives, especially of late-stage patients with cancers resistant to conventional treatments or with extensive metastasis. 

Because of his discovery of the PD-L1/PD-1 pathway in tumor immune escape, and his seminal work in the antibody blockade of PD=1/PD-L1 pathway as a cancer therapy, Dr. Lieping Chen’s research was named the most important scientific breakthrough of 2013 by Science Magazine. Dr. Chen has also received numerous other awards, including the William B. Coley Award -- the highest award in immunology -- in 2014, and the Warren Alpert Foundation Prize in 2017; he was the third Chinese winner, after geneticist Yuewei Jian and chemist Youyou Tu.
