Wang Min Ph.D., University of Wales, UK
Professor of Pathology
Wang Min, Ph.D., received his B.S. degree in Microbiology from Wuhan University in 1984, his M.S degree in Cell Biology at Shanghai Institute of Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in 1989, and his Ph.D degree in Genetics at University of Wales, Swansea, U.K., in 1993. He then performed 4-year post-doctoral training in vascular biology and immunology at the Department of Pathology, Yale School of Medicine. He became a Senior Scientist and Project Leader at GeneMedicine, Inc., in 1997 and then an Assistant Professor at University of Rochester, NY, in 1999. In 2003, he was recruited back to Department of Pathology and Vascular Biology Program at Yale School of Medicine, where he was promoted to Professor with Tenure in 2013. Dr. Min is a member of NAVBO, AHA, Yale Stem Cell Center and Yale Cancer Center. Dr. Min is also a Guest Professor at Sun Yat-sen University and an Honorary Professor at Zhejiang University. The goal in Dr. Min's lab is to dissect the signaling pathways, establish mouse models, and define the fundamental mechanisms involved in vascular development, remodeling, and repair related to human diseases such as vascular malformation, ischemia, and stroke. Dr. Min's lab has extensively employed biochemical, cell biological, and mouse genetic approaches to define the critical molecules mediating vascular development, remodeling, and repair. Dr. Min serves on the editorial board of Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, the Chinese Journal of Cell Biology, the Vascular Biology Publications Alert NAVBO (North American Vascular Biology Organization), World Journal of Experimental Medicine, and Frontiers in Physiology. Dr. Min has been the recipient of many awards, including the Irvine H. Page Young Investigator Research Award, the AHA Established Investigator Award, and the JACC Parmley Award.
