Ping Chi, MD, PhD is an Associate Member in the Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program (HOPP), and an Associate Attending Physician in the Sarcoma Oncology Service, Department of Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She completed clinical training in Internal Medicine at the Brigham and Woman’s Hospital and Medical Oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and a concurrent postdoctoral training in epigenetics and chromatin biology in the C. David Allis’ lab at the Rockefeller University. Her laboratory research focuses on understanding the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of transcriptional activation of novel oncogenic transcripts and oncogenic transcription factors in solid tumor malignancies, particularly in sarcomas and melanomas. Through mechanistic studies, she aims to identify novel therapeutic strategies to target oncogenic transcription factors and novel mechanisms of aberrant transcriptional activation of oncogenes. She also maintains an active academic clinical practice, leads early phase clinical trials and works with a multidisciplinary team to care for patients with melanoma and sarcomas, with the goal to expedite clinical translation of laboratory research.
