Wang Meixiang, male, Han nationality, was born in 1960. He graduated from Fudan University in 1983. Wang obtained a doctorate of science degree from the Institute of Chemistry at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1992.
A research fellow specializing in bio-organic and organic synthetic chemistry, Wang has mainly explored the biological hydrolytic reaction of nitrile and amide compounds applied to microbe cells and water generated nitrile hydratase, nitrilase, and amidase. He has also labored to integrate biochemistry and molecule biology methods to study the regulation, control, and reaction mechanism of bio-transformation responses.
Wang has served in a number of positions at the Institute of Chemistry at the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Before becoming a research fellow, he held assistant research fellow and associate research fellow responsibilities. He then assumed director position at the academy's chemistry and biology joint lab as well as working as the principal in the molecular recognition and selective synthesis lab. In addition, Wang serves as a doctoral tutor for students.
Wang is the co-author of several works published in 2000, having written primarily with Wang Meixiang, Gang Lu, Ji Gaijiao, Huang Zhitang, Otto Meth-Cohn, and John Colby.
