Jingxian Wang is an Associate Professor of environmental toxicology at the Institute of Hydrobiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and a Research Scientist at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. She obtained her B.S. degree in environmental science from Sichuan University and Ph.D. degree in hydrobiology from IHB, Chinese Academy of Sciences. In 2007, a postdoc research supported by DAAD scholarship at the Technical University of Munich involved developing biovirtus technology for risk assessment of POPs in surface water and drinking water. A 2nd postdoc at the Acadia University involved studying oil pollution and developing methods for detecting antioxidants in exhaust emissions from vehicles by HPLC/MS. Wang's research includes ecotoxicological potentials and molecular mechanism of persistent bioaccumulation toxicants in aquatic environment; sources, transfer, and fate of persistent organic pollutants in large riverine system; developing biological markers for early indication of fish and human health exposure to environmental contaminants.
