Wenshi Wang studied veterinary medicine at Shandong Agricultural University, China (2006-2010). In 2010, he started his master program of preventive veterinary medicine at Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science (CAAS), China. During this period, he conducted research projects on the characterization of humoral immune responses upon zoonotic viral infection in Harbin Veterinary Research Institute, CAAS. From 2013, he started his PhD training at the department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Erasmus MC Rotterdam, the Netherlands. His PhD projects mainly focused on the development of novel anti-viral strategies for hepatic and gastrointestinal virus infections (e.g. hepatitis E virus, rotavirus and norovirus). He received Kiem Award (the best first publication written by young microbiologists) from Royal Dutch Society for Microbiology (2017) and FEMS research grant from Federation of European Microbiological Societies (2017).
