Chi Lam Au Yeung, PhD

Dr. Chi Lam Au Yeung is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. She earned her bachelor and doctoral degrees at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2007 and 2011, respectively. During her graduate training, her research focused on understanding the biological significance of the deregulation of microRNA expression in human papillomavirus (HPV) associated cervical cancer development. Her current research interests include elucidating the functional roles of adipose tissue derived exosomal microRNAs in modulating ovarian cancer metastasis and chemoresistance; and delineating the roles of adipose tissue-specific secretory proteins and microRNAs in ovarian cancer progression.
