Guang Yang, MD
Dr. Guang Yang has joined as a research fellow with the Bing Center for Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia, Dana Farber Cancer Institute this past year. His education began in Beijing, China, earning him a PhD in Biochemistry and molecular biology. Dr Yang has been with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute since 2001, and with a diverse and strong background in biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology and cell biology. He is very proficient in antibody engineering, protein expression and purification, tumor antigen gene screening, RNA splicing and cell morphology research. He is a vital contributor to the Bing Center for Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia. Dr Yang is currently working on a variety of projects for the Bing Center for Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia. The following is a list of his current publications:
