Feng Yang Lab

About Us

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 model for human prostate cancer.  Postdoc positions are open.


The lab is currently funded by the Department of Defense Prostate Cancer Research Program, National Institute of Health / National Cancer Institute, and the Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas.
