    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Monica Yang is a rheumatologist with a clinical focus on patients with systemic sclerosis and connective tissue associated interstitial lung disease. She currently practices at the UCSF Scleroderma clinic where she also manages the Scleroderma Patient Registry and Biorepository.

    Dr. Yang's research interest is to understand the disease pathogenesis and heterogeneity that exists among SSc patients, especially those with ILD. Her work leverages novel experimental and computational genomic technologies to elucidate molecular phenotypes within the disease. One area of focus is the role of telomere dysfunction and aberrant aging in promoting skin and lung fibrosis.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
