After obtaining a BS degree in Chemistry in Peking University in China in 2001, Dr. Pan was recruited in a PhD program in Biochemistry in the University of Pennsylvania in the US and obtained his PhD in 2007, which was followed by a brief period (about 1 year) of postdoctoral research at the University of Pennsylvania. From 2008 to 2015, Dr. Pan conducted postdoctoral research at the Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School, where his research was focused on herpes simplex virus drug resistance and latency. Dr. Pan was recruited by Zhejiang University School of Medicine in October 2015. He is now a principle investigator in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Parasitology. He has published research papers in Cell Host Microbe,PNAS,Mol Cell,Nat Struct Mol Biol,J Infect Dis,J Virol, J Biol Chem, etc as the first author, and many more as co-authors. Now his research is focused on molecular mechansms of herpes simplex virus pathogenesis, latency and immune evasion, and is aimed at developing new antiviral therapeutics.
