Yuan Fang

Assistant Professor, Pharmaceutical Sciences

School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences


Yuan Fang joined the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Binghamton University in 2023. She received her PhD in mathematical sciences with a focus on statistics from Binghamton University under the guidance of Sanjeena Dang. Her PhD research focused mainly on developing novel unsupervised learning algorithms for non-standard data types that are usually encountered in biomedical research. Following her graduate studies, Fang joined the group of Kathryn Lunetta and Joanne Murabito at Boston University School of Public Health as a postdoctoral associate where her research focused on investigating the association between circulating immune cell phenotypes in the pro-inflammatory and regulatory pathways with cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. She has also been working on quantifying the heterogeneity in decline trajectories of cognitive functions in the Framingham Heart Study participants. Fang’s current research focuses on studying lipid profiles for ceramide pathways in boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy using multi-omics statistical and bioinformatics approaches. She is also interested in extending existing models and statistical approaches for clustering longitudinal data.
