Hongqian Yang

Hongqian (Angie) Yang obtained her bachelor’s degree from Peking University-major in biological science; minor in psychology. Then she completed her master’s education at Royal Institute of Technology in the field of molecular biotechnology. She joined the Zubarev group in 2009 as a Ph.D. student, mainly focused on protein deamidation (isoaspartate) and Alzheimer’s disease related studies.
