Wuxiang GUAN

Title: Principal Investigator E-mail: guanwx@wh.iov.cn


Dr. Guan obtained his BSc in Clinical Medicine (2000) and MSc in Virology (2003) from Tongji Medical University. His PhD was awarded by Institute of Viral Disease Control and Prevention, Chinese CDC (2006).

Research Interests

Dr. Guan did research in University of Kansas Medical Center (2007-2009), in Stowers Institute of Medical Research (2010-2012) before joining WIV in 2012. His research focuses on understanding the mechanism of DNA replication of virus, alternative polyadenylation regulation of viral mRNA and 3’ end biogenesis of noncoding RNA.
