Feng Yang Lab


About the Lab


The Feng Yang lab's research involves the investigation of the molecular mechanisms underlying therapy-resistance of human cancers, tumor microenvironment - prostate cancer interaction, and developing novel transgenic models for human prostate cancer. The lab is currently funded by the National Cancer Institute/NIH, the Department of Defense Prostate Cancer Research Program, and the Cancer Prevention & Prevention Institute of Texas.

Research Projects

  • MAPK4 biology in human cancers
  • Targeting GATA2 degradation as novel therapeutic approach for therapy-resistant prostate cancer
  • Development of a versatile gene delivery system for efficient and tumor specific gene manipulation in vivo
  • Development of an Ai-Myc model for Cre-inducible expression of c-Myc oncogene in vivo
  • Tumor microenvironment regulation of prostate cancer
  • FGFR1 signaling in prostate cancer and breast cancer
