    Collapse overview
    Dr. Hong-Gang (HG) Wang is Lois High Berstler Professor of Pediatrics and Pharmacology and Director of Pediatric Molecular Oncology Program at Penn State College of Medicine. He received his B.Sc. (1987) and Ph.D. (1992) degrees from University of Tsukuba (Japan) and completed postdoctoral fellowship at Burnham Institute (California) from 1993 to 1997. He joined Drug Discovery Program at Moffitt Cancer Center (Florida) as Assistant Professor in 1998, advancing to the rank of Professor, before moving to Penn State College of Medicine in 2008.

    Research in this laboratory aims to better understand the fundamental mechanisms that control apoptosis (a cell’s self-killing mechanism) and autophagy (a cell’s self-eating process) in the context of oncogenesis. In addition, targeting of these two closely related but distinct self-destructive processes for anticancer drug discovery and development is another major interest of his research group. The ultimate goal of Dr. Wang’s research is to translate basic science discoveries to the development of new approaches for the treatment of cancer.
