Academic Titles

  • Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • Graduate Faculty II, College of Graduate Studies


Dr. Xinwen Wang received training in pharmacokinetics and metabolomics at China Pharmaceutical University, with subsequent training in pharmacogenomics and proteomics at the University of Florida and the University of Michigan during her Ph.D. work.

During her postdoctoral training in translational sciences, Dr. Wang developed a strong appreciation for applying novel knowledge from basic research to address critical clinical needs. This broad training experience has enabled Dr. Wang to apply integrated tools to study the interindividual variability in disease susceptibility and drug responses, and also spanned the translational spectrum of her research from basic discovery to clinical investigation.

Dr. Wang is a recipient of Pre-K award in translational science and has been highlighted as an emerging scientific talent by a prestigious journal in the field of pharmacology “Drug Metabolism and Disposition.”

Area of Expertise/Research Interests

Dr. Wang’s laboratory focuses on applying pharmaco-omics tools to identify both genetic and non-genetic factors contributing to the interindividual variability related to disease risks and drug therapies for:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Neurological disorder

The objective of Dr. Wang’s lab is to advance understanding of molecular basis for the interindividual variability in disease susceptibility and drug response, and to eventually optimize the treatments for patients through genotype, prototype and metabotype guided precision pharmacotherapy.
