Gaowei Wang, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow

I obtained my Ph.D. in Computational Biology from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where I studied tumorigenesis using computational modeling under the supervision of Dr. Ping Ao. After my graduation, I joined Dr. Gen-sheng Feng’s lab at UCSD as a postdoctoral fellow to study the mechanisms of hepato-carcinogenesis by combining computational modeling and omics data. In the Sander lab, the goal of my research is to define the molecular blueprint that initiates and drives type 2 diabetes (T2D) by integrating different types of omics data generated from islets of non-diabetic, pre-diabetic, and T2D individuals.
