Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Wang lab takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying fundamental mechanisms controlling gene expression in mammalian cells, and how epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation, chromatin modifications, and RNA influence chromatin dynamics to affect gene regulation.

Assistant Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation) and, by courtesy, of Dermatology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interest is on immunotherapy (including allogeneic transplant) of cancer. I have studies the mechanism of monoclonal antibody therapy in lymphoma patients and am currently working on designing new strategy to enhance the clinical efficacy of antibody therapy by infusing expanded NK cells. I am also interested in using tumor vaccine along with hematopoietic cell transplant.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My immediate research aim is to determine the molecular basis for secondary resistance in basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Working with the Oro laboratory, we have made significant progress toward identifying factors that play a role in resistant BCCs. Using bioinformatic and functional cell biology approaches, we have identified novel drivers of BCC tumor resistance. My current focus is to determine the tumorigenic potential for putative drivers of resistance by developing reliable in vitro and in vivo functional assays.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interest is focused on investigating the molecular networks that underlie cancer stem cells and designing therapies that selectively target these cells, thereby eliminating a cancer's potential for regrowth.
