Winnie Wan-yee Tang, PhD
Department of Environmental Health Sciences
Dr. Tang received her PhD from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2004. For four years, Dr. Tang was a Research Associate at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in the Department of Environmental Health. Prior to that position, she was a post-doctoral fellow for two years in the laboratory of Dr. Shuk-mei Ho at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and then in her lab when she moved to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
Winnie's current research focuses on deciphering how environmental chemicals like xenoestrogen or heavy metals alter the epigenome via DNA de/methylation and induce chromatin remodeling, leading to cancer or other common diseases like asthma and cardiovascular disease. Her ultimate goal is to translate her epigenetic studies to greater community.
Outside lab, she likes cooking, reading, yoga and watching movies (especially Sci-Fi movies).
