Dr. Feng Wang studied nephrology and received his PhD from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. His mentor, Dr. Mingyu Liang, is a professor of physiology, and is the director of the Center of Systems Molecular Medicine at MCW. Dr. Wang’s doctoral project focused on the mechanisms of renal tubular injuries. Now he is working on non-coding RNAs in renal blood pressure regulation and renal injury. These studies will pave the way for a better understanding of the role of regulatory RNAs in renal pathophysiology.
