September 17, 2021

Congratulations to Dr. Wan Yang, Assistant Professor in Epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, who recently received funding from the NIH for UNCOVER (Underlying novel causes of onset of very early cancer research). This was based on the work started with the Data Science Institute/Irving Institute for Cancer Dynamics Seed Funds Program.

"We are so grateful for the support from the DSI-IICD seed fund program, which allowed us to start pilot work for the UNCOVER project. We look forward to continuing this work and hope to share new findings in the near future," says Dr. Yang.
