The Huh Lab in the Department of Pathology at Yale School of Medicine welcomes Miyoung Shin, PhD, who has joined as a Postdoctoral Associate.
The Huh Lab, whose Principal Investigator is Won Jae Huh, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pathology, studies Ménétrier's disease, cell plasticity, and sex-differential expression of the epidermal growth factor receptor. The laboratory’s goal is to investigate signaling networks that regulate cellular plasticity in pathologic conditions and normal homeostasis, which will form the basis for developing therapeutics.
Dr. Shin previously worked as a staff research associate at UC San Diego Center for Epigenomics, where she was a key member of the Functional and Spatial Genomics team focused on cellular heterogeneity in human disease. The center has made extraordinary research accomplishments in epigenomics via a multidisciplinary approach.
Dr. Shin has earned her PhD in Molecular Biology from Korea University in Seoul, her MS in Biological Sciences from Seoul National University, and her BS in Molecular Biology from Dankook University in Seoul. Her postdoctoral research was focused on preparing preliminary data and manuscripts for a research article in gastric cancer.
Her research interests are in spatial genomics and cancer biology. During her scientific career, she has published several peer-reviewed articles targeting and monitoring EGFR functioning in cancer cells. Dr. Shin’s academic training and research experiences have given her a unique background and skills in molecular biology and cancer research. With these experiences, her ultimate goal is to contribute to verifying the promising targets of advanced cancer progression at single-cell resolution.
