Professor of Pathology
Room 1027A, GSRB1, Box #103864,, Durham, NC 27710


Dr. Wang's laboratory is primarily focused on understanding the transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that drive the progression of hormone-dependent cancers. Additionally, they investigate the role of host proteases in coronavirus infection. Their recent studies aim to combine CRISPR/Cas13 technologies with nanotechnology to target undruggable transcription factors in cancers and host proteases for controlling infections caused by SARS-CoV-2 and related coronaviruses.
