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.  


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.
