We are seeking motivated individuals who will join us in our quest to investigate therapeutic vulnerabilities and understand molecular implication of pancreatic cancer and soft tissue sarcoma. Our laboratory is a highly interactive and cooperative research environment. We provide extensive training in topics and techniques that will be imperative for initiating a successful independent research career. Trainees joining the lab would be in the position to join a wide collaboration network across MD Anderson and other institutions. We are also part of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) program. Additionally. Dr. Yao is a member of Cancer Biology and Genetics and Epigenetics programs at GSBS. The goal of our laboratory is to build up a highly successful research team and work closely with fellow scientists and physicians to continue exploring the basic and translational problems of human cancer disease.
