Research Interests

Dr. Yang’s research focuses on epigenetic regulation and transcriptional profiles in pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis and asthma. In this work, she has identified molecular subtypes of pulmonary fibrosis, gene expression profiles of environmental exposures in asthma, and DNA methylation changes associated with the development of asthma and pulmonary fibrosis. Dr. Yang has recently expanded her research program to encompass studying epigenetic regulation of gene expression in other diseases and exposures, including role of epigenetics in metabolic disorders with a strong focus on prenatal exposures. Her research is funded by multiple grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense. In addition to her research, Dr. Yang co-leads education programs for the Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine (CCPM), including the development of the new Certificate in Personalized Medicine.
