Dr. Cecilia Yeung studies blood diseases and specializes in the molecular traits of myelodysplastic syndromes. Her team uses whole genome interrogation methods such as genomic array and massive parallel sequencing to tease out genes that may affect patient prognosis or serve as potential targets for therapy. Dr. Yeung also diagnoses diseases that can arise after transplant. She has a particular interest in graft-vs.-host disease and infectious diseases seen in the lungs of blood cell transplant patients.
