Research Interests

Dr. Wang received her Ph.D. and postdoctoral training in Applied Biochemistry at the University of Tsukuba, Japan. Her research was focused on studies of structural and conformational changes of macromolecular complexes and aggregates by various light scattering techniques including Static, Dynamic, and Electrophoresis Light Scatterings. Prior to joining Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics, she was a Research Associate under the supervision of Dr. Vernon E. Anderson in the Department of Biochemistry at Case Western Reserve University, where she enriched her expertise in mass spectrometry. Her current research focuses on studies of post-translational modifications (e.g., phosphorylation, glycosylation, lipid modifications, glycation, ubiqitination, acetylation and methylation), protein disulfide bonds, quantitive proteomics (e.g., ICAT, 18O labeling), as well as structures of proteins and complexes utilizing structural mass spectrometry techniques such as hydroxyl radical-mediated footprinting. As the manager of Proteomics Module of the Vision Science Research Center (VSRC), Dr. Wang is also responsible for proteomics and mass spectrometric studies in collaboration with VSRC investigators.
