Admissions is underway for the Fall 2012 class. The CMB Program interviewed the strongest applicants on January 27, February 10, and February 17. It was great to see the large turn out at the receptions. Applicants have until April 15 to make their decisions, so don’t be surprised if any of them contact you for more information.
My research focuses on understanding the effect of interleukin 6 in regulating T cell effector function, supervised by Dr. Mercedes Rincon. By understanding the biology of interleukin 6, we are looking for having a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms for autoimmune diseases. Outside the lab, I enjoy running, hiking and traveling. Rui Yang
