Howard Y. Chang is a professor of Dermatology in Stanford institute. He is a physician-scientist who has trained in genome science. His research has focused on mechanisms that coordinate the activities of large number of genes in cell fate control. He made a series of discoveries that introduced the important and pervasive roles of long noncoding RNAs in biological regulation. The long term goal of his laboratory is to decipher the regulatory information in the human genome for disease diagnosis and therapy.
