Ling Wang, MD, PhD

Dr. Wang has been an Instructor at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medical College of Wisconsin since February 2014. After she received her Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Max Planck Institute in Germany, she joined Dr. Mukhopadhyay’s Laboratory as a post-doctoral researcher at Harvard Medical School, where she established her interests in vascular biology and tumor biology.

Dr. Wang’s. has extensive experience in tumor angiogenesis and tumor biology. Her long-term research interests involve the development of a comprehensive understanding of the molecular mechanisms and the molecule-based diagnosis and therapy to woman cancer. Her study in neuropilin biology determines the status of neuropilin-1/GIPC (RGS-GAIP-interacting protein) signaling in vascular development and tumor progression. Currently, she is focused on to identify the role of microenvironment and germline BRCA1 mutation in breast cancer and ovarian cancer metastases, with specific emphasis on the signaling mechanisms and clinical significance.

Dr. Wang has 45 peer reviewed publications.
