Professor Wang Yulan 
Professor of Metabolomics


Professor Wang Yulan graduated in Chemical Engineering at Shaanxi University of Science and Technology, P.R. China in 1986, and received her PhD in Physical Chemistry in 1997 from University of East Anglia, UK. 

After her PhD, Prof Wang joined the Institute of Food Research and John Innes Center, UK, where she spent 1998 to 2001 on postdoctoral research, applying her Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) skills in food sciences.

From 2001 to 2007, Prof Wang worked at Imperial College London, in the field of metabonomics as research fellow. She used NMR and Liquid Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) spectroscopic techniques with computational modeling techniques to investigate the metabolic effects of infectious diseases and nutritional interventions. 

In 2007, she was recruited as part of China’s “1000 talents program” by the Chinese Academy of Science and became a professor at the Wuhan Institute of Physics and Mathematics.

Prof Wang has focused her research on developing metabonomics techniques, including NMR and MS-based techniques, which have been applied in the investigation of metabolic responses to infectious diseases, cancer, neurodegenerative disease and gastrointestinal tract disease, as well as drug toxicity studies. She has published over 130 peer reviewed journal articles and edited a book. She was an executive committee member of the Experimental Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Conference from 2002-2007 and is currently an editorial board member of several journals, including Scientific Reports, Metabolomics, and Current Metabolomics. 

Prof Wang has been appointed to the position of Professor of Metabolomics at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) as well as Director of Singapore Phenome Centre (SPC) with a joint appointment at LKCMedicine and the School of Biological Sciences (SBS).
