Personal profile

Prof Lexin Wang is Professor of Clinical Pharmacology at Charles Sturt University, and Medical Director at Wagga Medical Centre, Australia. He also directs basic and clinical research at the Cardiology Department of Liaocheng People’s Hospital of Shandong University, China. He is a specialist physician in both cardiology and general practice, a Fellow of the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (FCSANZ) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP).

Prof Wang's main areas of research has been cardiac electrophysiology and pharmacology. He was one of the first physicians who developed catheter techniques to ablate several types of tachycardia. His research team was the first to introduce minimally invasive techniques to treat congenital cardiac defects in children and young adults. Prof Wang currently directs an international team of researchers, working on stem cell therapies for cardiovascular disorders, as well as quality use of medicines in the management of hypertension, coronary artery disease and heart failure in primary and tertiary settings.

Prof Wang is an author of 350 peer-reviewed journal articles, and co-authored two major cardiology textbooks. He is a recipient of the Vice-Chancellor's Award for Research Excellence in 2002 and 2006 at Charles Sturt University.
