Nu Wang, Ph.D.

Sr. Scientist, Analytical Chemistry

Nu Wang, Ph.D., joins Circle Pharma as a Sr Scientist, Analytical Chemistry with over 12 years of professional experience in Analytical Chemistry, specializing in Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry. Before joining Circle Pharma, Nu was an Analytical Chemist at Amyris and Zymergen where she supported multiple molecule engineering programs in yeast and E.coli. While at Amyris and Zymergen, Nu Wang developed various sample preparation assays and analytical assays to separate, purify, quantify, and identify molecules by utilizing LC-MS/MS, LC-UV/DAD, LC-CAD, SFC-PDA, GC-MS, GC-FID, and Ion Chromatography. Previous to this, Nu was a postdoctoral researcher at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab where she worked on building an automated high-throughput metabolomics analysis pipeline in yeast. Nu received her Ph.D. at University of Minnesota, Twin Cities under the mentorship of Prof. John Ward and Prof. Paul Boswell. Her work there focused on cell membrane transporters and metabolite identification, which was achieved by constructing a retention time database that could be shared, utilizing simulations of chromatographic behaviors to predict the retention times of more than 1000 metabolites.
