Scientific Research Projects
The Wang Lab works on the development of ultrasensitive methods for the detection of proteins, enzymes, nucleic acids and small molecules based on single-molecule technology. The established methods are used for the diagnosis of many diseases including cancers, infectious diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases.
