Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Jun Wang is Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Preventive Medicine, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention. He has extensive experiences in genomic studies to identify and validate biomarkers associated with breast cancer risk and progression, and to investigate gene networks and signal transduction pathways initiated by steroid hormones. With the integrated skills in molecular biology and medical informatics, he is interested in translational research in genetic and epigenetic factors such as DNA polymorphisms, DNA methylation and microRNA as risk biomarkers and molecular targets for cancer prevention.
