The major focus of my laboratory is to understand cancer cell biology and to develop innovative anticancer therapies. I have long been interested in understanding a fundamental biology question, that is ‘how our cells protect the integrity of the DNA?’ This is critical because failure to do so will cause genome instability and eventually leads to the early onset of degenerative human disorders such as premature aging and cancer. Our goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms that maintain the genome stability in human cells by identifying the genes and the signaling pathways involved. In the long, we hope to translate this knowledge into potential anticancer treatment strategies.

Congratulations to Fangfang On Her American Cancer Society Postdoctoral Fellowship Award!


Fangfang Wang, a postdoctoral scholar in Dr. You-Wei Zhang's lab, has been awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the American Cancer Society for her research project titled Phase Separation of 53BP1 in Regulating Genome Stability and Cancer. The Pharmacology Department extends its congratulations to Fangfang and expresses anticipation in offering support for the success and discoveries of her project. Fangfang's commitment and excellence in research hold significant potential for valuable insights that will contribute to the advancement of effective cancer treatment and enhance our understanding of the disease.
