Research Interests

I have broad interests in hematolymphoid malignancies, in particular, the pathogenesis and development of new markers/tools in diagnosis with regard to the clinical application aspect of flow cytometry and molecular diagnostics. At the present time, I am concentrated on the clinicopathologic as well as translational research.

Dr. Wang practiced pathology for 2 years after he received his MD degree from China. He then moved to UCSD Medical Center as a Visiting Scholar in 1992.  He pursued his PhD in Molecular Pathology, Cellular and Molecular Medicine from 1994 to 2000 at UCSD.  He joined UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas as an Assistant Professor of Pathology in 2005 after he completed his Anatomic & Clinical Pathology residency at the University of Virginia in 2004 and Hematopathpology fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania in 2005. Dr. Wang joined UC San Diego in 2009 as an Associate Professor of Pathology and serve as Co-Director of the Hematopathology. Dr. Wang has expertise in diagnosing bone marrow and lymph node disorders, he also enjoys working in the fields of flow cytometry and molecular diagnostics.  Dr. Wang likes to share diagnostic challenge cases with his colleagues.
