Yiqiao Wang took a PhD in neuroscience in 2019 at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. His doctoral thesis was on studies of the early specification and diversification of sensory neurons in the peripheral nervous system, exploring different aspects of developmental neurobiology, from early progenitors to axon growth and terminal selection of synaptic partners. During this research, he made use of various in vitro and in vivo models and technologies, using mouse genetics, molecular cloning, cell culture, histology work and did few animal behavior experiments. His work resulted in several articles in journals such as Cell Reports, Scientific Reports, Nature Communications and Development. Yiqiao will conduct research at the new units at PKU and CIBR, and assist in training of students and lab management tasks.
