Professor  Yun Wang

Principal Investigator


Dr Yun Wang is Graduated from Fudan University in 1987, and been awarded his PhD degree in neurophysiology in 1995 from Glasgow University supported by the Wellcome Trust Studentship (1989-1992). Between 1993 and 2000, he served as a postdoc research assistant in Department of Physiology (1993-1998) and a research fellow in Pharmacology (1998-2000) in University College London before he joined in Lilly Research Centre (UK), Eli Lilly Company as a senior scientist and group leader in 2000 until his moving back to China. He has been currently appointed as a professor and senior principle investigator by the Institutes of Brain Science, Fudan University, Shanghai, China. He is also a visiting professor in Chongqing Technology and Business University. Dr Wang is currently a member of the editorial board of the SCI journal Autonomic Neuroscience: Clinical and Basic and has served as a reviewer for many international journals including Journal of Neuroscience, Jounal of Physiology, etc. Dr Wang’s lab is current supported by the fundings from Chinese Nature Science Foundation, Science and Technology Commission of Shanghai Municipality, Shanghai Pujiang Program for Talented People.
