Professor, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Jiguang Wang was a postdoctoral scientist in the Rabadan Lab. He worked on computational systems biology, specifically on the development of mathematical models to address medical and biological problems. His research revealed a novel type of non-coding RNA named xTSS-RNA, which plays an essential role in B-cell immunology and B-cell cancers. He is presently studying cancer evolution, aiming to reveal the evolutionary landscape of different cancers including glioblastoma multiforme, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, ependymona, and others.
