Wang Ping received his B.S. from Fudan University in 1997, and his Ph.D. in Molecular Cell Biology from the Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2002.  He completed his postdoctoral training at the University of Minnesota, University of Connecticut Health Center, and Yale University from 2003 to 2008.  He was appointed as Professor in the College of Life Science, East China Normal University in 2008 and joined Tongji University in 2014.  His group focuses on the principal enzymatic components of the ubiquitin system - ubiquitin ligases and de-ubiquitylases - in cancer, inflammation and stem cells. His group also works on the identification of small molecules targeting the ubiquitin modification system.
