Nick Wang

undergraduate student

Nick Wang (also known as Xindong Wang) studied biotechnology for his bachelor degree and will join Luo's lab as postgraduate student at Central China Normal University in 2019 (supervised by Jinhong Luo). During his undergraduate time, he studied the regulation of sleep and wake cycle, focusing on synapsin and PSD-95's expression among different brain regions of mice, and since firmly established his ideals of becoming a neuroscientist. He has also accomplished much in ecology and computer science. His work with professor Yang was published in in Int. J. Mol. Sci. His work Shitu was awarded as national second prize in China National College Student "Innovation, Originality and Entrepreneurship" Challenge.
