About Jie Wang

Biography:

Dr. Wang received PhD in Biophysics from the Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2003. She worked in the Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology Program at the University of Massachusetts as postdoctoral fellow and instructor with Dr. Zhiping Weng for about five years. At UMASS, she participated in the ENCODE project and studied the small RNAs mechanism by collaborating with professors like Dr. Theurkauf and Dr. Zamore.

Dr. Wang moved to Buffalo in 2013 and worked in the Genomics and Bioinformatics Core as Core Manager for Bioinformatics. In 2018, She joined Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center as Assistant Professor of Oncology.
