MSK Postdoc Siting Gan
Sloan Kettering Institute Postdoc Spotlight: Siting Gan, Massagué and Pe'er Labs
Siting Gan has the heart of a rebel. Although she focused on physics in high school in Beijing, China, where she grew up, and chose to major in physics in college, she knew that she “wanted to do research and discover things myself.” That determination to pursue her own questions led her to biology and, ultimately, to a unique situation at Sloan Kettering Institute (SKI).
