Rongsheng Wang received his B.Sc from Nanjing University, P. R. China, in 2005. He then obtained his Ph.D. in bioorganic chemistry in 2010, from the department of chemistry, Washington University, USA, where he worked with Professor John-Stephen Taylor and Professor Clayton Hunt to develop inhibitors of heat shock protein 70s for cancer therapy. He did extensive studies on derivatives of natural product quercetin and tried to elucidate its inhibition mechanisms by developing the biotin-tagged quercetin for proteomic studies. To suppress the promoter activity of heat shock protein, he also studied the distamycin-based polyamide approach. He recently joined Mediomics as a scientist, where he is mainly enrolled in development of biosensors, imaging probes as well as innovative methods for selecting aptamers.
