Prior to entering the field of law, Fang conducted her doctoral research at MIT, in the laboratories of Nobel Laureate H. Robert Horvitz and U.S. National Academy of Sciences Member Terry Orr-Weaver. At MIT, she investigated programmed cell death, developmental DNA replication, and gene amplification. She also received post-doctoral training at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in the areas of genomics, epigenetics, small RNA, and cancer biology. Prior to attending MIT, she had experience studying neuron regeneration and chromosomal evolution.
While at MIT, Fang also assisted a start-up medical device company in managing its patent portfolio, evaluating diagnostic technologies, and drafting patent applications.
