About: jianlongNODE

Jianlong Wang is a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Cell, Development and Regeneration Biology, Black Family Stem Cell Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York. He received his Bachelor degree from the Department of Biology in Nankai University (predecessor of the College of Life Sciences), and obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where he studied the regulation of plant RNA virus-host interactions. After a short year of postdoctoral research in the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he joined the Boston Children's Hospital/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard Medical School to continue his postdoctoral research, focusing on proteomic dissection of the pluripotency regulatory network of embryonic stem cells. He has established an independent laboratory at the Black Family Stem Cell Institute of Icahn School of Medicine in Mount Sinai since 2009. His laboratory is mainly engaged in understanding the molecular mechanisms of stem cell pluripotency and somatic cell programming, with a primary focus on transcriptional, post-transcriptional and epigenetic regulatory mechanisms. His lab has published a number of high-impact research papers in Nature, Nature Genetics, Cell Stem Cell, Molecular Cell, Cell Research, eLife, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, etc. He has received Harvard Stem Cell Institute Cell Development Award, the Irma T. Hirschl and Weil-Caulier Career Scientist Award, and the Harold and Golden Lamport Research Award. His detailed laboratory research can be found in
