“Targeting Bone Marrow Microenvironment for Myeloma Therapy”

Light lunch provided, please RSVP and contact Michele Ward at with questions.


Dr. Yang’s research study emphasis is on translating research results into better therapeutic targets in multiple myeloma. One of her research foci is to study the mechanism underlying the pathogenesis of myeloma bone disease, which has been addressed by investigating the ability of myeloma cells to enhance bone resorption and suppress bone formation by regulating the differentiation and activity of osteoblasts, osteoclasts, adipocytes, and other marrow stroma. Another of her research foci is the interaction of myeloma cells with bone marrow microenvironment and the role of tumor microenvironment in chemotherapy resistance. These studies aim to provide novel and potential therapeutic targets and tools for the treatment myeloma and myeloma-associated bone disease.

The 5th Annual Ellen's Icebreaker for Cancer Research will be held Saturday, March 4, 11 a.m., at Nagawicka Lake in Delafield.

Donations to cancer research are suggested for participation in the plunge, with no minimum donation required.

This "polar plunge" event is held in memory of Ellen Smith, a beloved Froedtert Hospital employee who died of gastric cancer in October 2013 at the age of 59.

People who do not want to brave the elements can participate by donating in support of someone making the plunge.

Proceeds from the event support the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center. The first polar plunge was held early in 2013, when Ellen Smith was still undergoing treatment for cancer. Since then, friends and family members have donated nearly $100,000 to cancer research at MCW.
