Dr. Nianli Sang Associate Professor Drexel University College of Arts & Sciences Philadelphia, PA, 19104 USA E-mail: email@example.com Dr. Sang started his systematic research training in Molecular Biology and Genetics in Fels Institute for Cancer Research & Molecular Biology, Temple University School of Medicine in 1992, immediately after completing his medical training in surgery at Fudan University Shanghai Medical College (China). He finished his major course work and fundamental research training in Fels Institute before his departure in 1994 for Kimmel Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University where he received his Ph.D. degree in Genetics. After finishing his postdoctoral training first in University of Pennsylvania and later in Cardeza Foundation for Hematological Research, he joined the faculty of Jefferson Medical College in 2003. His early work in Thomas Jefferson University focused on oxygen sensing and oncogenic signaling pathways that led to HIF activation and angiogenesis. Upon becoming a fully independent faculty member in Thomas Jefferson University, he shifted his research interest to a better understanding of the repressive effects of chemotherapeutics on HIF function. Other research projects in his laboratory include identification and validation of biomarkers of tumors, nutrient sensing mechanisms and development of novel therapies for tumors and ischemic disorders. Since 2008, he has been an associate professor in the Department of Biology, Drexel University College of Arts and Sciences, where he is continuing his research and teaching in the general fileds of biochemistry, molecular Biology and cell biology of major human diseases.
