  • Expertise

    Chemistry
    organic chemistry, asymmetric synthesis, supramolecular chemistry, medicinal chemistry, materials chemistry
  • Research Interests

    Dr. Wang’s research centers on developing novel organic synthesis methods for the effective and practical synthesis of biologically active compounds and biomaterials. In particular, they have synthesized enzyme inhibitors and nature product analogs (used as an anticoagulant and antimicrobial agents), developed novel asymmetric synthetic methods for the synthesis of chiral drugs, and designed and synthesized novel molecular gelators that can form supramolecular gels in organic solvents and aqueous solutions (soft biomaterials for research in biomedicine and tissue engineering).
