Ngoc T. Hoang, M.S., B.S. completed her Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology, with a Minor in Chemistry, at San Francisco State University in 2013. She continued on and finished her Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences - Stem Cell Science at the same institution in 2015. For her master thesis, she worked in Dr. Maximilian Diehn's lab at Stanford University, and investigated the role of Keap1 in radiation resistance in a clinically relevant mouse model of lung squamous cell carcinoma. She was awarded the CIRM Bridges to Stem Cell Research Fellowship in 2014 and 2015. Currently she is a scientific associate in the thoracic oncology lab at UCSF Mount Zion Campus, researching lung and skin cancer, as well as potential combination therapies to combat these cancers.
