Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Wang’s PhD was carried out with the Early Origins of Adult Health Research Group, University of South Australia. Her research focused on the associations between low birth weight and the risk of cardiovascular disease in adult life. Her studies demonstrated that reduced substrate supply in utero and low birth weight can negatively impact heart development into adult life.

Dr. Wang is currently a NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow. Her research interests have now expanded to the fetal origins of respiratory disease whereby her studies are aimed at understanding the links between in utero insults and airway/lung structure-function after birth.
