Dr. Yung obtained his B.A. (2009) in Chemistry from the University of Cincinnati. Later on, he received his Ph.D. (2014) in Pharmaceutics from The Ohio State University. His dissertation research under the direction of Robert J. Lee evaluated several novel polymer and lipid based nanoparticles for cancer gene therapy. In 2015, Dr. Yung joined the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) as a member of the Laboratory of Molecular Imaging and Nanomedicine (LOMIN). His current research interests include the design of nanoparticles for cancer specific targeting, biomarker detection, and drug/gene delivery.
