    Research Interests

    Dr. Wang’s research interests include the isolation, structural characterisation and pharmacological evaluation of natural peptides and proteins that have therapeutic potential as lead drug candidates. She is interested in performing structure-activity relationships to optimize the bioactivity of these natural peptides/proteins as a method of rational drug design and in investigating the pharmacological mechanisms of their action. She have also worked extensively on the use of electrospray mass spectrometry employing MS/MS fragmentation to achieve the complete molecular characterisation of novel peptide/protein biomarkers of neuroendocrine cancers and in defining tumour subtypes according to their known variation in invasive and metastatic potential.
