Yun (Claudia) Wei

2020 - 2021 Recipient

"Claudia is a research fellow especially interested in rhabdomyosarcoma, utilizing the patient-derived xenograft mouse model along with the developmental STAR zebrafish. She got her Bachelor's degree in Wuhan University back in China, and then moved to another warm city, Atlanta, to pursue a PhD in Cancer Biology at Emory University. For her dissertation, she worked with her mentor Anna Marie Kenney to investigate the aberrant cell signaling in pediatric brain tumors medulloblastoma. She likes to play badminton, bike, or jog during her free time. She is also a big fan of board games; no gambling though!" - Langenau Labs
