Dr. Guangshun Wang (b. in 1963, Yangzhou, China) is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology and Microbiology of the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), Omaha, Nebraska, USA. He received his Ph.D. degree in the field of biophysical chemistry at Simon Fraser University, Canada. He then did his postdoctoral training in the field of protein NMR and structural biology at the Florida State University and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). During 2002-2009, he was the director of the NMR Core Facility of UNMC. With grant supports from the NIH, Prof. Wang is interested in the development of novel antimicrobials to combat antibiotic-resistant superbugs. For this purpose, his laboratory has constructed the most cited database for antimicrobial peptides (http://aps.unmc.edu/AP), which enabled the lab to design new methods for discovering anti-MRSA and anti-HIV peptides. Prof. Wang has published over 80 journal articles, reviews, and book chapters. He has also edited a book entitled "Antimicrobial Peptides: Discovery, Design and Novel Therapeutic Strategies" (CABI, version 1, 2010; version 2, 2017).
