Short biography

Dr. Haibin wang received his Ph.D. from Peking University Health Science Center, China in 1999, and completed his postdoctoral fellowship training in 2002 at Division of Allergy, Inflammation and Immunology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School. He has been remaining on the faculty of the same Division at Harvard for 12 years. His research focuses on the immunoregulatory roles of eosinophils, including roles for eosinophils as antigen­presenting cells in regulating regional and systemic T cell responses in allergic diseases including asthma, and roles of eosinophil-secreted cytokines in directing T cell differentiation and in B cell priming and activation. He has authored/co-authored over 20 peer-reviewed publications in international journals, books and conference proceedings.

Title: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Special issue Note

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an important cause of mortality, morbidity and health-care costs worldwide. It is a preventable and treatable condition characterized by progressive but not fully reversible airflow limitation. Patients with similar degree of airflow limitation differ in their clinical, radiological, functional presentation and response to therapy. Hence, the recent GOLD intiatives (Global strategy for the diagnosis, management and prevention of COPD) classify COPD patients based on multidimensional evaluation which includes assessment of severity of symptoms, risk of exacerbations along with the severity of the airflow limitation on spirometry measurements. Recent interest to identify clinically relevant phenotypes beyond the classic chronic bronchitis and emphysema subtypes will allow us for a better management strategy and thus better outcomes.

Short biography

I am an independent researcher, not associated with any organization for my research. This work represents only my views. I believe to understand where and how our patients live, get sick and heal is an important part of medicine. And art illuminates science and medicine. I live in Lower East Side Manhattan that was once called the 5 points when Civil War broke out over a pair of shoes. Follow a boy’s will (Robert Frost), people gather here where the hearts belong. So, people here take the time to hear the racks of stones and pebbles, and the petals dropping from rosemary, devil’s claw, and cherry blossoms. Kindness hunts for self-seekers here in 5 points then, today and tomorrow. This is a place where many new immigrants like me take a rest and settle, and is a place that taught me being ernest. I have published a number of books and papers related to oncology, radiation oncology in particular, global epidemiology and public health of oncology of oncology and pollution. There will be a major challenge of cancer epidemic in the world related to environment and life style, especially in the Asia Pacific in the coming decade. Try to understand various challenges facing patients, cancer patients in particular, is the focus of my work. Think knowledge and kindness, the world will be a better place. @Lower Manhattan, 3.14.15.
