He graduated from Medical School in China and received his clinical training as a Fellow in Australian National Liver Transplantation Unit. Wang completed his Ph.D. degree at the University of Sydney, Australia studying the transplantation immunology. He then pursued postdoctoral research in immunology at Harvard Medical School, USA, and further postdoctoral research in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine at Robarts Research Institute, Canada. Using cellular and molecular approaches and in vivo animal models, Professor Wang’s laboratory is interested in: nurturing human pluripotent stem cells into mothers of circulatory cells and immune cells, generating transplantable cells for stem cell-based therapy and reducing transplantation rejection and targeting embryonic signaling pathways in cancer for more effective treatment.
