Areas of Research
- Integrative Medicine
Research activities in the laboratory of Peiying Yang, Ph.D., are primarily focused on two main areas:
- Botanical/natural products and nutritional interventions in cancer treatment, prevention and symptom management.
- Bioactive lipids and their potential role in inflammation and cancer.
Additionally, the laboratory is interested in exploring other integrative medicine modalities in cancer care in the preclinical research setting. The long-term goals of the Yang Lab are to develop effective and safe natural products or nutritional supplements or other modalities to enhance the overall survival of patients with cancer and improve their quality of life.
