|Blumberg Laboratory People|
|Cheng-An (Richard) Chang - Richard received his PhD from Texas A & M University. He joined the lab in September, 2019 and is leading the transgenerational inheritance project, aiming to understand how the effects of environmental exposures are carried through the germ line across generations|
|If you are interested in pursuing posdoctoral studies in our laboratory, please send a CV, statement of research interests and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Blumberg. A strong background in Genomics, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Developmental Biology and/or nuclear receptor biology is required.|
Graduate Students - Ph.D
|Yikai Huang - Yikai joined the lab in September 2021 after receiving his M.S. in Biotechnology management from UCI. Yikai worked on the GOLIATH project to develop screening assays that identify chemicals affecting the development of thermogenic beige and brown adipocytes. Yikai transitioned to the PhD program in October, 2022 and now leads the interactions between obesogen exposure and diet project.|
|Amna Raja - Amna is a visiting PhD student from COMSATS University in Pakistan who joined the lab in July, 2023
|Positions may be available - If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies in our laboratory, please see the links to the CMB or Pharmaceutical Sciences graduate programs on the UCI web site and contact Dr. Blumberg directly. We are always interested in highly motivated graduate students.|
|Positions are occasionally available - please contact Dr. Blumberg directly.|
