Welcome to the Peng George Wang Lab

 

The main research focus in Wang’s laboratory is in glycoscience: the investigation of carbohydrates in chemical, biological, agricultural and bioengineering sciences. Advances in biological sciences have demonstrated that carbohydrates serve not only as structural components and energy sources, but also as key elements in virtually all life processes, including bacterial and viral infections, cell adhesion in inflammation and metastasis, differentiation, development, regulation,and many other intercellular communication and signal transduction events. Wang’s laboratory is using a variety of modern research tools to uncover the biological functions of carbohydrates.
