YiYing Tung


I graduated from the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign in May 2022 with a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. And will continue my study in veterinary medicine beginning fall of 2022. Over the last three years, I have been working in the Wildlife Veterinary Epidemiology Lab, and my projects mainly focus on the vertical transmission of chronic wasting disease in Illinois wild white-tailed deer. Through this experience, I have not only deepened my knowledge in wildlife epidemiology but also strengthen my skills in communication and collaboration. Looking ahead, I am interested in continuing my education in wildlife and zoology medicine and exploring other fields in the meanwhile.
