Ying Xiong graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2017 with a BA in biochemistry and biology. During undergrad, he broadly studied the transcriptional regulation of metabolism in the lab of Dr. Mitch Lazar and focused on circadian rhythm pathways involved in hepatic adipose metabolism. He is currently in Case Western’s Medical Scientist Training Program and is pursuing an MD/PhD. In the Tesar lab, he is interested in studying the intersection of immunity and glia, especially the potential immunological role and function of oligodendrocytes in the context of immune disorders.
