Research Interests

Dr. Yi-Ching Wang investigates the etiological association of alterations in tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes with lung tumorigenesis. The alteration analyses include gene mutation and polymorphism, gene loss, hypermethylation of promoter, chromatin structure alteration of gene locus, mRNA alteration, and protein expression alteration. More recently, Dr. Wang has continued to do research on cancer genomics and epigenomics such as genome-wide search of loss of heterozygosity, and genome-scanning approaches of DNA methylation and chromatin alteration profiles for identification of new genes critical to lung tumorigenesis. Several potential anti-cancer drugs also are developing in her laboratory. Dr. Wang has published around 100 SCI papers on lung cancer including prestigious journals such as J Clin Oncol, J Clin Invest, and Nat Commun. Dr. Wang is one of the recipients of the Excellent Research Award of Taiwan Ministry of Science.
