Jianping WU, Ph.D.
School of Life Sciences
Biological Structure Laboratory
Dr. Wu obtained his bachelor’s degree from Tsinghua University in 2012 and received his PhD degree in Structural biology from Tsinghua University in 2017. He then worked as a postdoc at Princeton University. His research was focused on molecular mechanism of membrane proteins including ion channels and transporters. His work has been published in Cell, Nature, Science etc. Dr. Wu has received the Outstanding Ph.D. Student Award (Tsinghua University and Beijing, 2017), Academic Excellence Award (Tsinghua University, 2017), and Wu Ray Prize (2017). Dr. Wu joined Westlake University as an Assistant Professor in 2019.
