Bin Wang obtained her Ph.D. (2004) from the Department of
Chemistry at Queen’s University (Canada). Her doctoral studies with Richard
D. Oleschuk and J. Hugh Horton, spanned the areas of analytical chemistry,
nanotechnology and surface chemistry, which involved developing polymer
materials to fabricate microfluidic devices and the further chemical
modification of polymer surfaces for specific microfluidic applications.
After finishing her Ph.D. study, Wang conducted one year postdoctoral
research with P. Martin Petkovich at Queen’s University to develop antigen-
and antibody-modified polymer microdevices. In 2005, she joined Kevin M.
Weeks’ research group at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Her postdoctoral work involved applying the newly developed RNA structural analyzing technology to monitor ligand-induced
conformational changes in tRNAs and mRNAs. Wang is interested in RNA biochemistry and nanotechnology.
