Wallace Minxian Wang
@ BEIJING INSTITUTE OF GENOMICS, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Wallace (Minxian) Wang is a principal investigator at Beijing Institute of Genomics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China National Center for Bioinformation. Before accepting a faculty position, he was a computational biologist in the Medical and Population Genetics Program of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, working with Dr. Amit Khera and Dr. Sekar Kathiresan in human cardiovascular genetics and genetic risk prediction. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship supervised by Dr. Martin Pollak (academician of US National Academy of Sciences) at the Harvard Medical school. He completed his doctoral studies in computational biology and human population genetics at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences/CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology under the direction of Dr. Yungang He, Dr. Shuhua Xu, and Dr. Felix Li Jin (academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences). He also holds a bachelor’s degree in animal studies from Jilin University, China. His lab is interested in disease risk variants and genes profiling by genome-wide association studies, genetic risk prediction, precision medicine and making large-scale biomedical data sounds through statistical genetic modeling and artificial intelligence, with the ultimate goal of assisting in guiding precise disease prevention, leading to healthier lifestyles, and in the discovery of new therapeutic targets.
