Visiting Research Assistant Professor, Kinesiology and Nutrition
Dr Pang started her research career studying cytokines involved in diabetes and obesity-associated metabolic complications. After gaining her PhD degree, she joined Dr Timothy Koh’s lab and started working on skin wound healing research particularly interested in macrophages and monocytes. Her current work mainly focuses on the heterogeneity of immune cells during wound healing in human and mouse models.
