Cheung joins the LSI

Vivian Cheung's lab arrived at the LSI in July from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Cheung, a geneticist and pediatrician, studies the genetic basis of human phenotypes and traits to expand understanding of how basic genetic mechanisms relate to human health and diseases. Cheung joined the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, when she was named a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. Previously, she worked at the Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania.
