Welcome Haixia, who joins the Wang Lab as a Postdoctoral researcher.
Congratulations to Prof. Jiguang Wang. He has been promoted to Associate Professor and appointed as Padma Harilela Associate Professor of Life Science.
Congratulations to Prof. Jiguang Wang, who has recieved the 2020/21 School Research Award from School of Science, HKUST, in appreciation of his excellent performance in research.
Congratulations! Yurong WU, the UROP student in our lab, has been elected to the finalist of the 2021 Mr Armin and Mrs Lillian Kitchell Undergraduate Research Award!
Congratulations to Yingxi, Dong, Yiyun, and Yoonhee! The Cerebral Cavernous Malformation (CCM) study has been officially accepted by American Journal of Human Genetics. In this study, we discovered and elucidate the role of MEKK3-I441M in CCM. The I441M mutation that actives kinase activity in CM endothelium is a fascinating finding that not only reveals etiology of popcorn-like CM but also provides a theoretical foundation for developing non-invasive methods for genotyping, patient diagnosis and potential targeted therapy against vascular malformations. Well done!
Congratulations to the acceptance of "Classifying gastric cancer using FLORA reveals clinically-relevant molecular subtypes and highlights LINC01614 as a biomarker for patient prognosis" in Oncogene! The FLORA pipeline (https://github.com/WangLabHKUST/FLORA) developed by Yiyun Chen, Hongyu Shi, Shengshuo Huang and Prof. Jiguang Wang was applied to comprehensively profile the long non-coding RNAs and revealed lncRNA-based subtypes in gastric cancer which robustly predict patient survival. In collaboration with Prof. Jun Yu's lab at Chinese University of Hong Kong, the LINC01614 was verified as an oncogenic lncRNA that promotes gastric cancer proliferation and metastasis, and is a potential biomarker in gastric cancer.
Congratulations to Quanhua Mu, Zhaoshi Bao and Prof. Jiguang Wang, whose recent publication at Nature Communications has been selected as one of the top 10 Chinese glioma research advances by the Chinese glioma collaborative research group!
Prof. Wang has been appointed as an Academic Editor of The Innovation between March 2020 and March 2023. The Innovation is a new transdisciplinary journal via the co-operation between Cell Press and YIPA (Youth Innovation Promotion Association, CAS) members.
