Xiaofeng Wang, PhD

Assistant Professor of Molecular and Systems Biology

Cancer Biology Program

Xiaofeng obtained his PhD from Tsinghua University, China, where he studied chaperon proteins in tumor malignancy. After that, he went to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School and worked in Charlie Roberts lab as a postdoctoral fellow studying chromatin remodeling SWI/SNF complex in pediatric cancers. From there, he developed strong interest in cancer epigenetics. Outside the lab, he likes hiking and cooking (especially hosting hot pot).


Luke Deary (MCB, Guarini PhD Innovation Fellow)

Luke previously studied the contributions of adult intestinal stem cells to tissue homeostasis and regeneration in the Breault Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital. He then worked at Minerva Biotechnologies developing a CAR-T therapy, which is now in a Phase 1 clinical trial. Luke is primarily interested in the epigenetic control of stem cell identity and lineage determination. In the Wang Lab, he is investigating how SWI/SNF complexes maintain and direct gastrointestinal cell lineage and how alterations in SWI/SNF subunits dysregulate gene regulatory networks to drive disease. Away from the lab, Luke enjoys hiking, skiing, ice hockey, brewing beer, and gardening.


Ruoyun Wang (MCB)

Ruoyun graduated from Nanjing University where she majored in Biology and joined the MCB program in 2019.  She is interested in computational biology.


Andrew McCray (MCB, Guarini PhD Innovation Fellow)

Andrew recently graduated from Colby College in 2020 with a major in Biochemistry. Prior research was focused on the effects of organic content in atmospheric aerosol chemistry. Andrew’s interest in epigenetics brought him to the Wang lab in June 2020 working as a Research Assistant before joining MCB graduate program. He is interested in understanding the consequences of SWI/SNF subunit mutations in human diseases. Andrew’s other interests include soccer, skiing, and generally enjoying the outdoors.


Tom Skipper (MCB, MD/PhD)

Tom is an MD-PhD student currently doing his PhD thesis in the Wang lab. He is interested in cancer epigenetics and its application to precision medicine. He graduated from Brown University in 2019 with a degree in biomedical engineering. Previous research focused on preclinical validation of new cancer targets from genome-wide CRISPR screens. When not at the bench or in the books, he enjoys reading, discovering new music, and anything that gets him outside including trail running, soccer, skiing, mountain biking, and backpacking.


Alex Breslav '25

Alex is a sophomore at Dartmouth College currently studying biology on a tentative pre-medical track. At the Wang Lab, he works with Andrew on researching SWI/SNF subunit mutations. Outside of the lab, Alex enjoys playing chess and is on the powerlifting team.


Alice Wong '25

Alice is a sophomore at Dartmouth College planning to major in Biology and minor in Computer Science while on the pre-medical track. As part of the Wang lab, she is assisting mainly with bioinformatics analysis. Apart from her work at Dartmouth, she loves to horseback ride, play piano, read, sing, and spend time outside with her friends.

Warren Shepard '26

Warren is a freshman at Dartmouth College planning to study biomedical engineering and computer science while on the pre-med track. At the Wang Lab, he is currently assisting with bioinformatic analysis. In his free time, Warren enjoys hiking and climbing, as well as playing tennis


William Hodgson '25

Will is a sophomore at Dartmouth College studying biology and computer science. He is interested in bioinformatics and the mechanisms behind epigenetics. Outside of class and lab, Will enjoys trail running, alpine climbing, and getting horribly lost in the mountains.


Nicolaus Dahl '25

Nick is a Junior at Dartmouth College studying Biology and English while on the pre-med track. In lab, he is interested in exploring the epigenetic mechanisms of cancer. In his free time, Nick loves to write, play basketball, and cook.  


Ellie Stevens '26

Ellie is a sophomore at Dartmouth College studying Classical Languages and Literature on the pre-med track. In the lab, she is interested in wet lab research surrounding cancer epigenetics. Ellie is a member of the Dartmouth Cancer Scholars program and does tutoring and research for the Dartmouth Classics Department. She also enjoys biking, skiing, ice hockey, and reading. 


Rebecca Ronai '25

Rebecca is a '25 studying computer science and biology. She is very interested in combining her passions and applying bioinformatics to cancer research. In her spare time, Rebecca loves to dance, debate, and bake!
