Biography

Xuan Wang is a microbiologist who is interested in developing new microbial fermentation processes for the production of bio-based chemicals.

His lab combines genetics and metabolic engineering in a concerted effort to address two great challenges in the applied microbiology field. Those challenges include first, how to increase the efficiency of microbes to use sugars from renewable biomass; and second, how to expand cellular metabolisms to produce new ¿value-added¿ chemicals such as industrial bulk chemicals, nutrition supplements, pharmaceuticals and biological polymers.
