Gen-Sheng Feng, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Department of Pathology, School of Medicine, and the Molecular Biology Section, Division of Biological Sciences, University of California San Diego (UCSD). The focus of Dr. Feng’s research program is on understanding the molecular mechanisms driving hepatocarcinogenesis, using both genetic and chemical biology approaches. More recently, his and other labs have identified “paradoxical” pro- and anti-tumorigenic molecules in liver cancer.

Dr. Feng received a PhD degree in Molecular Biology and Microbiology at Indiana University Bloomington. He did a postdoctoral fellowship, awarded by the Medical Research Council of Canada, at the Hospital for Sick Children and Mt Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Canada. Before joining UCSD, Dr. Feng held faculty positions at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, and the Sanford/Burnham Medical Research Institute in La Jolla. Dr. Feng has published 129 peer-reviewed research papers, reviews and book chapters in Science, Nature Medicine, Cancer Cell, PNAS, Immunity, Genes & Deve., MCB, JBC. Blood, Gastroenterology, Hepatology and J Immunol, and has served on the editorial board of MCB and JBC.
