Prof. Jun Wang is the PI of Multiplex Biotechnology Laboratory and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at SUNY Albany. He received his Ph.D. in Biological Engineering from Purdue University where his research was focused on single-cell microfluidics and gene delivery. In the spring of 2010, he started his postdoctoral research in Professor James Heath’s group in the Chemistry Department and NanoSystems Biology Cancer Center at the California Institute of Technology. His work includes one-step, self-powered blood chip, 2D barcode microarray, and high-throughput single-cell proteomics and transcriptomics. His group at SUNY Albany is focused on barcode chain technology for biosensing and tissue engineering. He has received numerous awards including Chorafas prize.
The current research interests are multiplexed barcode sensor, single-cell signaling networks and single-cell systems biology. Specifically, we use the unique barcode technologies to study stem cell differentiation and tumor-host interactions as well as neural tissue production.
