Dr Yang has demonstrated the important functions of several key DNA repair proteins such as NBS1/FANCA/PARP1 in DNA repair process. He discovered a critical role of Trex1 exonuclease in degrading ssDNA in order to prevent cellular innate immune reaction. His research interest after returning to China is to unravel the nature of epitranscriptomic RNA modifications with focus on dynamic RNA methylations.

He serves in scientific advisory boards for academic institutions and in national funding agencies. He also holds a leading position in several academic societies.
