The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology announces the appointment of Guang (Geoff) Yang as an instructor in Molecular Pathology effective Sept. 28. He is currently an LMP Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellow.

Geoff earned his M.D. from Hebei United University, Tangshan, Hebei, China and his Ph.D. from Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi’an, Shaanxi, China. He completed Anatomic & Clinical Pathology residency training at Loma Linda University Medical Center in California, a Molecular Genetic Pathology fellowship at the Mayo Clinic and a Hematopathology Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania.

During his training Geoff has conducted research on protein biomarker identification in breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma and predicting response to CAR T-cell therapy in B-acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He has also explored tumors for microsatellite instability and DNA mismatch repair protein expression; undertaken transcriptomic analysis of myeloid malignancies using RNA-seq; and compared NGS, FISH, and IHC in the detection of EML4-ALK fusion in lung adenocarcinoma.
