Lab Profile

Yoon-A Kang


I earned my BA in biology at Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. During my Master’s degree in the laboratory of Dr. Chae-ok Yun, I developed a novel anticancer therapy using an artificial transcription factor targeting VEGF promoter and oncolytic adenovirus. For my PhD training, I joined the laboratory of Dr. Emery Bresnick at the university of Wisconsin, Madison where I studied how the GATA factor pathway regulates erythropoiesis. I graduated in June of 2013 and then joined the laboratory of Dr. Emmanuelle Passegué to start my postdoctoral training. My current research projects focuses on characterizing the biology of novel multipotent progenitor (MPP) populations in physiological and pathophysiological conditions. When not in the lab, I am enjoying the outdoors.
