Tanyu Wang, Ph.D.
Tanyu Wang, Ph.D. serves as a Scientific Advisor in the areas of chemistry, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.Dr. Wang assists with drafting patent applications, assists with prosecuting U.S. patent applications, and corresponds with foreign associates to guide the prosecution of foreign applications.
Dr. Wang graduated from Beijing University of Chemical Technology, China, with a B.S. degree in Organic Chemistry in 2007 and obtained her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Auburn University, U.S., in 2012. Her graduate research focused on the development of electrochemical sensors and bioassays for in-vitro quantification of molecules and proteins of biomedical significance. Dr. Wang completed a postdoctoral position at the University of Kansas, where she established an efficient microfluidic system and operation protocols for solid-phase ELISA with potential for clinical use. She then joined Professor Gangli Wang’s laboratory at Georgia State University as a postdoctoral associate. Here, she developed DNA folding-based microelectrode sensors for microRNA quantification and nanomaterial-based electrochemiluminescence detection methods for convenient sensing and visualized signal readout of metal ions and small molecules including piperazine drugs. Dr. Wang has also served as a scientific leader in a startup biotechnology company, where she prepared small business grant applications and assisted in patent protection.
Dr. Wang has over 10 years of research experience in a diverse range of technical areas, but especially in electrochemistry and nanomaterials. She has been invited to present her research at many national and international conferences and has co-authored numerous journal articles and book chapters, including “Metal Ions-Modulated Near-Infrared Electrochemiluminescence from Au Nanoclusters Enhanced by HEPES Buffer at Physiological pH” (Electrochimica Acta 2018); “Near-Infrared Electrochemiluminescence from Au Nanoclusters Enhanced by EDTA and Modulated by ions” (ChemElectroChem “Back Cover” 2017); “Near-Infrared Electrogenerated Chemiluminescence from Aqueous Soluble Lipoic Acid Au Nanoclusters” (Journal of the American Chemical Society “JACS Spotlight” 2016); “Microelectrode miRNA Sensors Enabled by Enzymeless Electrochemical Signal Amplification” (Analytical Chemistry 2015); “Ultrasensitive Microfluidic Solid-phase ELISA using an Actuatable Microwell-Patterned PDMS Chip” (Lab on a Chip “Top 10% Paper” 2013); “Detection of Ferrocenemethanol and Molecular Oxygen Based on Electrogenerated Chemiluminescence Quenching at a Bipolar Electrode” (Langmuir 2013); “Quantitation of Femtomolar Protein Levels via Direct Readout with the Electrochemical Proximity Assay” (Journal of the American Chemical Society “Featured Story for Commercialization and Marketing” 2012) and “Electrochemical Sensors Based on Molecularly Imprinted Polymers Grafted onto Gold Electrodes using Click Chemistry” (Analytica Chimica Acta 2011). Dr. Wang is also named as a co-inventor on an issued U.S. patent and two patent applications, and has served as a peer reviewer for over 16 scientific journals.
