Yanli Wang

Resident Physician

I am an aspiring physician scientist who hopes to become a clinical geneticist who splits her time between clinical duties and research.

I have robust and extensive computational skills and through multidisciplinary collaborations with other researchers, I hope to understand the functions of unknown genes as well as the effects of genetic variants of unknown significance.
