Lingling Yang, Ph.D.

Lingling Yang

Lingling Yang is a research scientist I at the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, working under the direction of Jen Q. Pan. Yang uses biochemical and molecular biological imaging, as well as next-generation sequencing techniques, to interrogate the function and localization of T-type calcium channels. In addition, she is generating new mutant animals that recapitulate human mutations associated with schizophrenia and other psychiatric diseases for studying the mechanisms underlying these diseases.

Collaborating with a structural biology group at Harvard University, Yang also tries to get proteomic and structural information of the T-type calcium channel. Her goal is to generate novel therapeutic approaches for psychiatric diseases based on deep understanding of the disease mechanisms and the structural information.           

Prior to joining the Broad Institute in 2016, Yang completed her Ph.D. at Boston University. She subsequently undertook a postdoctoral fellowship at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and a postdoc associate position at Tulane University.
