Dr. Tang’s research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of TGF-beta signaling and the role of TGF-beta signaling in cancer development. She has been interested in applying quantitative proteomics, phosphoproteomics, and other research techniques to discover new molecules and novel phosphorylation events in TGF-beta signaling. She is also interested in screening small molecule inhibitors and examining their roles in suppressing TGF-beta signaling.

Areas of Expertise

1) TGF-beta signaling, 2) proteomics, 3) phosphorylation, 4) ubiquitination
