Welcome to The Wang Lab

Our research goals are to advance our knowledge on the fundamental mechanisms of organism aging, lipid metabolism and reproductive senescence. These intertwined biological processes exert profound influence on human health, and are the major risk factors for various chronic and degenerative diseases. Our laboratory has been studying the molecular mechanisms governing these key biological processes and their complex interrelationship, by harnessing the power of functional genomics in Caenorhabditis elegans with metabolomics/lipodomics, chemical engineering and optical biophysics.
