Research Interests

Dr. Tang seeks to understand how miRNAs function in the development of human diabetes and to discover novel miRNAs as diagnostic epigenetic biomarkers and therapeutical targets for diabetes. Current studies are focused on analyzing the function of glucose-regulated miRNAs in the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells. Other studies involve identification and characterization of type-2 diabetes-associated miRNAs by high-throughput profiling of miRNA expressions using a diabetic mouse model.
