Dr Chunming Wang (CM) received his Bachelor and Master's degrees in Biochemistry from Nanjing University (China), entering the field of biomaterials research under the supervision of Junfeng Zhang. He obtained his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) under the supervision of Dong-An Wang. Then, CM undertook his postdoctoral training at the University of Cambridge (UK), working between Wilhelm Huck's group in the Chemistry Department and Fiona Watt's lab at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Stem Cell Research, before returning to Singapore to join the Institute of Medical Biology, Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), where he assisted Simon Cool and Victor Nurcombe in collaboration with industry on a cross-institutional drug discovery project.


In Oct 2012, CM took the Assistant Professorship at ICMS, University of Macau, to continue his scientific exploration in developing bio-inspired materials for a wide range of medical applications. To date, he has won 8 research grants from O Fundo para o Desenvolvimento das Ciências e da Tecnologia de Macau (FDCT), National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), University of Macau Research Committee as well as Nanjing University, China. These generous supports enabled the formation of 'Chun Ming Tong Sui' (春明糖水), a young and vibrant team devoted to weaving sweet polymer chains into new medicines. CMTS are also fortunate to have fantastic collaborators in Nanjing, Boston, Singapore and across Europe.


It is the great team effort of CMTS that enabled CM to see his name among the winners of 2nd Prize of Natural Science Award at the 2016 Macao Science and Technology Awards.
