Liang-Bo Wang is a Computational and Systems Biology PhD candidate in Dr. Li Ding’s lab at Washington University in St. Louis. He received his BS in Electrical Engineering and MS in Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics from National Taiwan University. Liang-Bo’s research focuses on cancer proteogenomic characterization using the latest technologies, including mass spectrometry, single cell sequencing, spatial transcriptomics, and multiplexed imaging. By multi-omics characterization of human tumors particular in glioblastoma, his work identifies potential key players driving the oncogenesis, aberrant signaling cascade, and tumor microenvironment, opening up future therapeutic avenues. He also develops computational tools and databases to analyze large-scale multi-modal datasets and provide valuable resources for the research community.
Liang-Bo is actively involved in international cancer research communities such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), Clinical Proteogenomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC), and Human Tumor Atlas Network (HTAN). He also enjoys contributing to open-source programming projects. In his free time, he likes to hike, photograph, and read sci-fi novels.
