Dr. Wang is originally from China, he received his B.S. in biology from Northwest A&F University (NWAFU) in 2009, and his Ph.D. in cell biology from Wuhan University in 2014. Upon complement of his graduate training, Dr. Wang worked as an assistant researcher at Central South University and did his postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Yonghao Yu at UT Southwestern, where he studied DNA damage response and drug resistance in cancer therapy. In 2020, Dr. Wang was recruited to Department of Radiation Oncology as an Instructor, his current research focus on immunotherapy in mismatch repair deficient cancers and targeting DNA damage machinery for cancer therapy.
