Dr. Shang-Hsun Yang is the Associate Professor in Department of Physiology at NCKU, Taiwan. He received his B.Sc. degree at National Chung Hsing University in 1998, M.Sc. degree at National Taiwan University in 2000 and Ph.D. degree at Emory University, USA, in 2008. He has developed his own research career at NCKU since 2009. His research interests focus on the regulation of microRNAs on HD, and tries to understand the regulatory mechanisms and potentially therapeutic directions for this neurodegenerative disease. Additionally, he also attempts to expand his research fields to other neurodegenerative diseases, and wishs to demonstrate the relationship between specific microRNAs and neurodegenerative diseases.
