Dr. Song has been trained in genetics and epigenetics including miRNAs and DNA methylation in cancers. Moreover, she has studied their correlation to cancer risk and different lifestyles. Dr. Song’s research is focused on integrating environmental factors, lifestyles, exposures, epigenetics, genetics and biomarker to understand the complexity of the disease.
Dr. Song is the Principal Investigator on a 2015-2016 OSU-CERTS Pilot Project: Effects of Electronic Cigarette Use on the Human Lung.
