Dr. Bin Wang
Assistant Professor of Chemistry
B.S. (Pharmaceutical Chemistry), Beijing Medical University
M.S. (Pharmacy), National University Singapore
Ph.D. (Analytical Chemistry), Queen’s University
Dr. Wang’s research interests include RNA
biochemistry and nanotechnology.
Hired through Marshall University Experimental Program
to Stimulate Competitive Research (MU-EPSCoR), Wang will develop
technology to analyze RNA
structure in microdevices fabricated of glass
and polymer materials.
This technology will be used to investigate specific RNA-therapeutic
drug binding sites and RNA-protein interactions.
Dr. Wang teaches Introduction to Analytical Chemistry.
Prior to coming to Marshall,
Dr. Wang served as a postdoctoral fellow at the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and at the Queen’s Cancer Research Institute in
Canada. While at UNC, Dr. Wang gained experience in
developing and working with RNA structure analyzing technology.
Before pursuing her Ph.D., Wang worked at the Beijing Research
Institute of Pharmaceutical Industry, developing methods for
testing anticancer drugs and Chinese medicines.
