The main focus of our research centers on discovery of novel organic reactions and development of new methodologies for applications in organic synthesis, biochemical and biophysical research, medicinal chemistry, and material science. Our ongoing research projects range from photolabile protecting group development and application to development of step-economy oriented carbohydrate synthesis for applications in synthesizing carbohydrate-based vaccines and saponin adjuvants.


Dr. Wang received his BS degree from Tsinghua University and went on to complete his Ph.D. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  He received his Post-doctoral training at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
