Lab Location



Thazin Nwe Aung obtained her PhD in biomedical science under the supervision of Prof. David Adelson at the University of Adelaide, Australia in 2019. During her PhD, she focused on understanding the mechanisms of cellular signalling, communications and interactions, especially those involving cancer apoptosis, metastases, and immune function by using molecular genetics and systems biology approaches. Upon completion of her PhD, she moved to Yale University. Her current work focuses on identifying prognostic/predictive biomarkers associated with response/resistance to treatments in cancer using spatial omics.
