Dr. Cecilia Yeung, who wears dual hats as a hematopathologist and a molecular genetics pathologist, joined the faculty of the Pathology Labs in the Clinical Research Division this month.
Yeung studies novel molecular markers in lymphomas and leukemias, which help with diagnosis and prognosis and may guide future therapies.
“The excellent reputation of the Center and the impressive expertise of the researchers and physicians here attracted me to the position,” Yeung said.
She completed two fellowships in molecular genetics pathology and hematopathology at Washington University in St. Louis. Yeung received her medical degree from Penn State College of Medicine and conducted her residency at the University of California Davis Medical Center.
“Cecilia is a wonderful colleague who brings innovative ideas to the table and is very receptive to collaborative efforts,” said fellow pathologist Dr. Howard Shulman. “Her expertise in multiple facets of pathology including anatomic, clinical, hematopathology and molecular pathology is an absolute asset to the Hutch.”
