Developing novel biological therapies targeting myeloid malignancies 

The Wang Lab conducts acute myeloid leukemia (AML) preclinical research to find novel, synergistic treatments that target AML cells and leukemic stem cells in normal and hypoxic conditions. 

Our research focuses on a variety of mechanisms, including DNA repair, DNA damage, apoptosis, autophagy, mitophagy, and cell cycle.
