Academic Interests

Dr. Fang laboratory has broad interests and deep expertise in vascular biology, non-coding genome, and nano-medicine. His lab investigates the pathophysiological mechanisms of vascular diseases, particularly the modulation of vascular health by non-coding genome in the context of cardiovascular complication (atherosclerosis) and pulmonary disease (acute lung injury).Their major research goals are 1) to elucidate novel non-coding genome-mediated disease mechanisms and 2) to develop new nanomedicine-based diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The Fang lab applies multi-disciplinary approaches including high-throughput sequencing, bioinformatics, material sciences, human genetics, bioengineering tools, and cell/molecular biology techniques as well as experimental in vivo and in vitro models.
