Dr. Fei Geng

Dr. Fei Geng is an associate professor at McMaster University. Our current research aims to elucidate the role of autophagy that is regulated by YAP/TAZ pathway in skin fibrosis of Scleroderma disease. We will employ the cutting-edge spatial multi-omic tools to discover the novel biomarkers from skin biopsies of patients with Scleroderma compared to healthy volunteers. This translational research will correlate the biomarkers with clinical patient information including serum autoantibodies and disease features and will shed light on the discovery of novel therapy for Scleroderma.
