Dr. Peng Wu received his Doctoral Degree in Medicinal Chemistry from Zhejiang University in 2012. He then performed postdoctoral research at the Technical University of Denmark and the University of Copenhagen. In 2016, he moved to Cambridge, MA, working as Research Fellow in Chemical Biology at Harvard, Broad Institute, BWH, and MIT. In Mar. 2018, he was appointed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology at the University of Copenhagen. Since Oct. 2018, he has been Group Leader at the Chemical Genomics Centre of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund. Starting from Apr. 2024, he is the Substitute Chair and W-3 Professor in Chemical Biology at the TU Dortmund University. His research interest originates from the interface between chemistry and biology. A central theme of his research projects is to develop new small molecule-based modulators and novel chemical modalities to target biological macromolecules, especially RNA-binding proteins and disease-associated RNAs.
