Jason H. Yang, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor and Chancellor Scholar in the Department of
Microbiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics and in the Center for Emerging and Re-
Emerging Pathogens at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. He received his Ph.D. in
Biomedical Engineering from the University of Virginia, where he trained with Dr. Jeffrey
Saucerman, studying beta-adrenergic signaling in cardiac myocytes. He completed his
postdoctoral training with Dr. James Collins at MIT and the Broad Institute, studying
metabolic mechanisms of antibiotic-induced bacterial death physiology. Dr. Yang is the
recipient of a K99/R00 Career Development Award from the National Institutes of Health to
investigate the effects of host metabolic variation on antibiotic efficacy.
Dr. Yang leads a systems biology research group, where they are developing approaches that
integrate high-throughput experimentation with network modeling and machine learning to
accelerate the discovery of molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis
and treatment of chronic and infectious diseases.
