Research Areas

The Wang Group 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, I aim 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.
