Dr. May D. Wang is an Associate Professor in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering of Georgia Tech and Emory and School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Georgia Tech. She is a Kavli Fellow, a Georgia Research Alliance Distinguished Cancer Scholar, and a Fellow of The American Institute for Biological and Medical Engineering (AIMBE). She serves as Co-Director of Biomedical Informatics Program of Georgia Tech in Atlanta Clinical and Translational Science Institute (ACTSI), Co-Director of Georgia-Tech Center of Bio-Imaging Mass Spectrometry, and Biocomputing and Bioinformatics Core Director in Emory-Georgia-Tech Cancer Nanotechnology Center. She is also with Emory Winship Institute, Georgia Tech IBB and and IPaT.
Prof. Wang’s research is in Biomedical Big Data analytics. She focuses on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) for Personalized and Predictive Health such as high throughput NGS and -omic data mining to identify clinical biomarkers, bionanoinformatics, pathological imaging informatics to assist clinical diagnosis, critical and chronic care health informatics for evidence-based decision making, and predictive systems modeling to improve health outcome. Prof. Wang published 190+ peer-reviewed articles in BHI. She is the corresponding/co-corresponding author for articles published in Journal of American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (JBHI), IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB), Proceedings of The IEEE, IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine (TITB), Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Annual Review of Medicine, Nature Protocols, Circulation Genetics, Nanomedicine, Annals of BME (ABME), and Trends in Biotechnology etc. She has led RNA-data analysis investigation within FDA-led Sequencing Consortium (SEQC) of MAQC-III.
Currently, Prof. Wang serves as the Senior Editor for IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI), an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME), and an Emerging Area Editor for Proceedings of National Academy of Science (PNAS). She also serves as IEEE EMBS Biomedical and Health Informatics Technical Committee Chair. She is an IEEE-EMBS 2014-2015 Distinguished Lecturer, and an EMBS Administrative Committee Officer representing North America. In addition, Dr. Wang has devoted to the training of young generation of data scientists and engineers, and is a recipient of Georgia-Tech’s Outstanding Faculty Mentor for Undergraduate Research.
