Bin Liu, PhD

Professor of Anesthesia


Bin Liu is a professor of Anesthesia at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. Liu’s research group is focusing on developing novel human monoclonal antibody-based targeted cancer therapeutics. His lab’s strategy is to develop and utilize an antibody library selection approach to functionally probe the internalizing cell surface epitope space associated with living tumor cells residing in their tissue microenvironment, and identify novel antibody-antigen/epitope interactions that can be exploited for therapeutic targeting. Liu is focusing on developing antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) and targeted siRNA/miRNA delivery based on novel internalizing antibodies discovered in the lab for cancer treatment.
