Currently Prof. Wang holds Adjunct Professor in Medical School of Xiamen University, P.R. China and a registered nutritionist in Australia. Professor Wang has led the Nutritional Neurodevelopment Research programs in both academia and industry before moving to Charles Sturt University in December 2012. Her areas of expertise includes molecular & cell biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, neuroimaging (MRI & MRS) and nutritional intervention on cognitive function assessment in both animal and humans. She is well accomplished in translating basic science discovery to human clinical trials for the development of functional food products. She has made major contributions to the field of Nutritional Neurobiology and Glycobiology, and thus has emerged as an internationally recognized leader on the nutritional significance of human milk sialylglycoconjugates and brain cognitive development.
