Shanzheng Wang

Guest PhD student

My name is Shanzheng Wang, a bioinformatics PhD student in Drost Lab. I am part of Vagabond consortium. For my project, I am working on how R-loops regulate pediatric tumors. By analyzing the available DNA and RNA sequencing data coupled with model system experimental validation, we would reveal the causes of the level changes of R-loops, the consequences of those changes, and how these kinds of cancer would be targeted. In Drost Lab, I will mainly study if R-loops are associated with breakpoints in kidney cancer, meanwhile, I will also be involved in epigenetic research in ATRT using the published Chip-seq data sets.

In my free time, I like running, training in the gym, and hiking.
