Y Hoang is a sixth-year graduate student in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics Department. Y is interested in studying the starvation-induced developmental process of Myxococcus xanthus. She investigates the effects of signaling on cellular shape change and nucleoid dynamics during the multicellular development. She went to Vietnam National University for her undergraduate degree in Microbiology. She worked on the epidemiology of Dengue virus in Vietnam prior to attending Michigan State University.
