The Wang Lab takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying fundamental mechanisms controlling gene expression in mammalian cells. Our work shows how epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation, chromatin modifications, and RNA influence chromatin dynamics to affect gene regulation. 

Our lab is focused on:

How various dynamic epigenetic changes in chromatin structure impact gene expression during stem cell pluripotency/self-renewal, cellular differentiation, and reprogramming.

Epigenetic mechanisms of the pruritus (itch) circuitry.

How three-dimensional chromosomal structure and dysregulation contribute to development of diseases such as aging and cancer.

 
 

The long-term goal of The Wang Lab is to translate our understanding of these complex mechanisms to studies of human diseases.

 

 
We believe the greatest scientific discoveries occur only when individuals dare to take risks.

The Stanford Program in Epithelial Biology was founded in 1999 in the Stanford Department of Dermatology as a Tier A Multidisciplinary Stanford Research Program. Since its inception, it has grown to involve 60 Stanford faculty members working on questions in epithelial biology using an array of experimental systems, including C. elegans, Drosophila, Xenopus and mammals.


 
 
Applied research generates improvements, not breakthroughs.
Great scientific advances spring from pure research.
