Dr. Yizheng Wang obtained his Ph.D. degree in Laval University in Canada in 1991, and conducted postdoctoral research at Case Western Reserve University in the United States from 1991 to 1994.He was introduced to Huashan Hospital affiliated to Fudan University in January 2022 and was concurrently appointed to State Key Laboratory of Medical Neurobiology and MOE Frontiers Center for Brain Science, Institutes of Brain Science, Fudan University,as a principal investigator .

His research has focused on neurological disorders. He has been engaged in long-term research in the field of neurobiology, systematically studying the mechanisms by which ion channels and ion homeostasis affect the survival and development of neurons, as well as their pathological significance in neurological disorders. He has provided insights into the calcium sources involved in neurotrophic factor-regulated neuronal survival, neural development, and plasticity. Additionally, he has made significant contributions to understanding the important role of TRPC6 in ischemic brain injury and Aβamyloid formation.
