ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR | Genetics and Genomic Sciences
Research Topics
Alzheimer's Disease, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Cancer, Neuroscience, Parkinson's Disease
Network and Integrative Systems Biology
Dr Wang is working to develop integrative network models to combine large-scale matched genomic (whole-genome sequencing), transcriptomic (bulk and single cell resolution), proteomic and epigenomic (DNA methylation and ATAC-seq) data generated from diseased and control tissues, with a special focus on neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. By decoding the hidden interconnected relationships among a large network of genes/proteins that underlie the disease pathology, he aims to identify new pathways/genes/cell populations that drive the key pathways of disease, in the hope that this may lead to novel therapeutics to treat the diseases.

PhD, Fudan University

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Wang did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2022 and/or 2023: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
