    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Wan has extensive training in molecular biology, cell biology and immunology. She is an expert in the field of novel assay development, and has extensive experience in academic research work. Dr. Wan mastered novel ELISA assays for the entire murine IGF/IGFBP system and for human and murine humanin and have done lots of IGFs, IGFBPs and humanin assays with the other collaborators, and developed new assays for mitochondria small peptides (MDPs). She has directed core facilities at UCLA and USC, focusing on translation of assays and novel assay development.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
