She is a Georgia Research Alliance Distinguished Cancer Scholar, Director of the Biocomputing and Bioinformatics Core in Emory-GeorgiaTech Cancer Nanotechnology Center, and Co-Director of Georgia-Tech Center of Bio-Imaging Mass Spectrometry. Prof. Wang’s research is on Big Biomedical Data Analytics with a focus on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) for Personalized and Predictive Health. It includes high throughput next generation sequencing and -omic data mining to identify clinical biomarkers, pathological imaging informatics, health informatics, bionanoinformatics, and systems modeling. She has published 150+ peer reviewed articles in BHI such as IEEE Proceedings, IEEE TITB, IEEE J-BHI, IEEE TBME, IEEE RBME, Nature Protocols, PNAS, JAMIA, Annual Review of Medicine, Briefings in Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Medical Imaging, Pathology Informatics, ABME, and Trends in Biotechnology. She has actively participated in FDA-led Microarray Quality Control and Sequencing Consortium (MAQC-SEQC) and her bioinformatics systems were certified by NIH/National Cancer Informatics Program as silver-level compatible (e.g. caCORRECT, omniBiomarker). Prof. Wang received PhD-EE, MSEE, MS-AppliedMath, MSCS from the Georgia-Tech (USA), and B.S.Eng from Tsinghua University (China). She had industrial R&D experience in the former AT&T Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies Bell Labs, Intel Architecture Lab, and Hughes Research Labs. In 2005, Prof. Wang received Georgia-Tech’s Outstanding Faculty Mentor for Undergraduate Research Award. In 2014-2015, she is appointed as IEEE-EMBS Distinguished Lecturer. She currently serves as a Co-Chair of IEEE-EMBS BHI Technical Committee, the Senior Editor for IEEE Journal of BHI, and Chair of IEEE-EMBS Special Topic Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics.
