Yu-Shien Sung

Yu-Shien SungI was born and raised in Taoyuan, Taiwan. I received my B.S. degree (2017) in Chemistry from National Central University (NCU). I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Chemistry under the direction of Prof. Elisa Tomat at the University of Arizona. In the Tomat lab, I focus on improving the iron chelation approach for anticancer research. My work involves design, synthesis and biological investigation of disulfide-masked prochelators that target the iron metabolism of cancer cells.  Outside of the lab, I enjoy hiking, making food, and playing table tennis.
