Project Description

My lab has a variety of projects suitable for a student in the Medical Student Research Track. The current activities in Wang laboratory include: 1) Identification of biomarkers for diagnosis and therapy for human head and neck cancer; 2) Molecular mechanisms of head & neck cancer including the properties of cancer stem cells, transcriptional machinery, microRNA functions; 3) Experimental therapeutics of head and neck cancer with different genetic alterations; 4) tumor microenvironment including the role of inflammation, fibroblast activation and angiogenesis in cancer. In addition to cancer biology, Dr. Wang’s laboratory studies molecular mechanisms of inflammatory skin diseases and normal stem cell fate determination during embryonic skin development.
