Yan received her Ph.D. in 2000 from the University of Maryland at College Park, where she studied the role of CD14 in mammary gland response to infection.  During her post-doctoral training at NIAID, she studied c-cbl and cbl-b mediated T cell signaling.  She also studied RNA binding to TLR3.   Since 2011, Yan joined the laboratory of Vanja Lazarevic as a biologist to study the role of EGR2 in CD4 T cells and innate lymphoid cells.
