Chi Van Dang is the Scientific Director of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and an established basic and translational researcher, with 29 years of experience doing cancer biology research at Johns Hopkins and now continuing that work as a professor at The Wistar Institute. His laboratory made the seminal connection between the MYC oncogene and cancer metabolism and has continued to contribute to the understanding of how MYC, hypoxia, and alterations in cancer immuno-metabolism contribute to cancer development and how they can be exploited for therapeutic benefit.
