Dr. Yeh obtained her Honours degree in immunology in 2005 from the University of Adelaide, where she investigated the role of c-jun NH2 terminal kinase in regulating the killing of S. aureus in neutrophil.  She undertook her PhD in Prof Antonio Ferrante’s lab investigating the immunomodulatory properties of quinolone-based fatty acids.  After completing her PhD degree, she took a three-year postdoctoral research position at the Lowy Cancer Research Centre, University of New South Wales in Sydney studying the anti-inflammatory properties of novel small molecule inhibitors in collagen-antibody-induced arthritis and atherosclerosis.  In 2014, she joined the APCRC-Q working on projects involved in developing novel prostate cancer target for diagnosis, imaging and detecting of response to therapy.
