Dr. Yeung is a surgeon whose focus is the treatment of liver and bile duct tumors. His research focuses on the genetic mechanisms of tumorigenesis with emphasis on tumor suppressor genes and hereditary cancers. Dr. Yeung's work exploits a unique animal model of hereditary cancer to study the multi-step process of tumor development. Two such novel tumor suppressor genes of current interest relate to the disease tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Dr. Yeung's laboratory utilizes genetic, cell biologic and biochemical approaches to dissect the function of these genes.

Phone: (206) 667-4512

Dr. Young's graduate work was performed in Sue Povey's lab, looking at the genetic basis for a human genetic disease called tuberous sclerosis. This was followed by twelve years working with Barbara Trask in Fred Hutchinson's Human Biology division, first as a post-doc and then as staff scientist. There, her research mostly focused on the evolution and transcriptional regulation of some very large mammalian gene families' olfactory and vomeronasal (pheromone) receptors. Young also applied her bioinformatics skills to a number of other projects in the Trask lab, including copy-number gain and loss in prostate cancer and measurement of methylation levels across the human genome.

Dr. Yuh's interests and expertise are in advanced imaging for diagnosis and imaging-guided treatment of various disease entities, imaging-based disease heterogeneity, and optimizing efficacy of imaging contrast agents. During the early development phase of the magnetic resonance (MR) contrast agents, Dr. Yuh designed and conducted many clinical trials and facilitated the FDA approval of MR contrast agents, which have become essential components of current MR imaging examination. His recent research focuses on assessing tumor heterogeneity for early prediction of ultimate treatment outcome for cancer and for the collateral circulation status for triaging therapy for acute stroke.

Ning Zheng , PhD

Phone: (206) 616-3990

The research in Dr. Ning Zheng's lab focuses on a superfamily of multi-component protein complexes, known as cullin-RING ubiquitin ligases as well as the emerging family of ubiquitin-specific proteases. By controlling protein turnover, these cellular machines regulate diverse biological processes, such as cell cycle progression, signal transduction, transcription, DNA repair, and metabolism. Dysregulation of these complexes has been associated with multiple human disorders including cancer, neurological disease, and viral infection. He utilizes protein complex X-ray crystallography in his research to determine the atomic 3-D structures of the protein machines they are interested in and identify novel therapeutic targets for developing anti-cancer treatments.

The projects in Dr. Ziegler’s laboratory are focused on the factors that control normal immune regulation, as well as those that contribute to disease development and progression. The laboratory is currently engaged in two areas of investigation: the genes and cell populations that are involved in controlling autoimmune-type responses, and the role of epithelial cytokines (TSLP, IL-25, and IL-33) in the regulation of barrier responses to infection and allergen challenge. Finally, they have also found a novel role for TSLP in the regulation of tumor progression, and have established a program in tumor biology, including metastatic breast cancer, colitis-associated cancer and melanoma.
