Dr. Hailin Wang obtained his Ph.D. at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Science, in 1997, and had worked as a postdoctoral fellow and research associate (2000-2005) at the University of Alberta, Canada. He has his expertise in epigenetics, in particular, DNA methylation and demethylation, and is a pioneer for the discovery of DNA N6-methyladenine in high eukaryotes. He also has his expertise in ultrasensitive analytical technologies (e.g., capillary electrophoresis-laser induced fluorescence polarization, single-molecule fluorescence imaging, and UHPLC-MS/MS) for detection of carcinogenic DNA adducts and for the study of DNA-repair proteins interactions. He published 200 peer-reviewed papers in leading journals, including Cell, Nature, Cell Stem Cell, Mol Cell, Cell Res, Hepatology, PNAS, JACS, Cell Discovery, Nucleic Acids Research, EHP, ES&T, Anal Chem. He won a number of wards, “Presidential Special Award for Graduate Student” by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (1997), “CAIA” Scientific Award, Special medal (2015, 2020), “Excellent Nominee” for “Hundreds of Talents” plan by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (2011), , Outstanding Science and Technology Achievement Prize of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (2013), “Outstanding Young Scientists Fund” by the National Science Foundation of China (2011), Excellent for “Outstanding Young Scientists” by the National Science Foundation of China (2016).
