General

Prof. Peng-Yuan (George) Wang is a junior Professor in Shenzhen Institute of Advance Technology (SIAT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He was awarded his Ph.D in Chemical Engineering, National Taiwan University in 2011, and then worked as SIEF Fellow in Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne. In 2015 he received prestigious ARC DECRA Fellowship (2015). After that, George started his academic journey as a Principal Investigator. He returned home as an Assistant Professor in Taipei Medical University, and then moved to SIAT, CAS as a Professor under the Recruitment Program of Global Young Experts of China (One-Thousand Young Talent Program).

As a bioengineer, Prof Wang’s research focuses on biophysical cues in biological application. He investigates the behavior of stem cells and bacteria using physical properties of biomaterials and interdisciplinary approaches learned from engineering, chemistry, materials, and biology. To date, Prof. Wang has published more than 40 SCI peer-reviewed papers including Adv Funct Mater, Small, Acta Biomater, ACS Appl Mater & Interface and etc. The papers have been cited more than 1000 times with H Index 18 on Web of Science.
