Xiao Wang, the Thomas D. and Virginia Cabot Assistant Professor of Chemistry and a Core Member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, has been promoted to Associate Professor With Tenure, effective July 1, 2024.

Wang completed her undergraduate studies at Peking University, and earned her PhD in Chemistry from the University of Chicago. She was named a Searle Scholar in 2020 and was awarded a 2022 Packard Fellowship. Earlier this year, she was promoted to Associate Professor Without Tenure.

The Wang Lab is developing and applying the state-of-the-art tools of chemistry, biophysics and genomics to map the brain from molecules to systems. In specific, with in situ sequencing of nucleic acids as the core approach, Wang aims to develop high-resolution and highly-multiplexed molecular imaging methods across multiple scales toward understanding the physical and chemical basis of brain wiring and function.
