Cancer Biology Graduate Student (Rotation)
Nancy received her Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from National University of Singapore in 2016. After graduation, she underwent clinical training at National University Hospital in Singapore to obtain her Practicing Certificate as a fully-registered pharmacist. Prior to her joining Stanford Cancer Biology PhD Program as a PhD student, Nancy worked in Dr Wai Leong Tam’s lab at Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) as a research officer to investigate the impacts of different oncogenic mutations on cell-state specific metabolic reprogramming. Through her rotation at the Svensson Lab, Nancy hopes to explore the use of orphan hormones as therapeutics and biomarkers for metabolic diseases. Her current work focuses on characterizing the functions of an orphan thyroid gland hormone at the cellular level.
