Research Goals

The long-term goal of the Wang laboratory is to determine how epigenetic codes, including patterns of DNA methylation and combinatorial patterns of simultaneously occuring histone modifications, are established and how this establishment goes awry upon environmental stimuli, thus contributing to human diseases (such as cancers and autoimmune diseases).

The Wang Laboratory of Human Environmental Epigenomes is housed in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Dr. Wang teaches courses as part of the PhD Track in Toxicology, Physiology & Molecular Mechanisms, and teaches a lecture in the course, The Molecular Basis of Environmental Health.
