Dr. Wellen received her PhD from Harvard University, working with Dr. Gökhan S. Hotamisligil, studying the role of inflammation in metabolic diseases. She performed her postdoctoral work, focusing on cancer cell metabolism and metabolic signaling with Dr. Craig B. Thompson at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2011, Dr. Wellen joined the Department of Cancer Biology at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. She was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2017. Her honors include selection as a Forbeck Scholar and a Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences. Her lab is broadly interested in links between cellular metabolism, signaling and gene regulation in metabolic diseases and cancer.
