Professor Jie Wang is a Medical Oncologist and serves as the chair of the Medical Oncology Department at the National Cancer Center, Cancer Hospital Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences. She is Chief Physician Professor at Peking Union Medical College. Her main research interest focuses on liquid biopsy and biomarker in targeted therapy and immunotherapy in lung cancer. Over the decades of laboratory research on plasma-based mutation analysis, its feasibility and value in predicting tumor response have been proved by the prospective clinical trial (BENEFIT study), which is the first study in the world and signifies an important advance for the field, Professor Jie Wang was the Principal Investigator and corresponding author. Afterward, a series of research and original achievements that provides clinical evidence for the use of circulating tumor DNA(ctDNA)-based biomarker. This work broke the bottlenecks of biopsy specimens, such as the acquisition and availability of tissue samples, inadequate tissue quality, and intratumoral heterogeneity, and basically defined the current practice.

Also, her research focuses on investigating mechanisms of phenotypic transformation that induce drug resistance to targeted therapies and identifies critical cellular interactions and pathways regulating tumor microenvironment at the single-cell level, which provides novel targets for new drug research and development. She dedicates her work to precision medicine for lung cancer by engaging in clinical research on new drugs on targeted therapy and immunotherapy.

She has led and co-led multiple national and international phase III clinical trials, including Choice-01, Capstone-1, Rationale 307, etc., to address various aspects of the management of advanced lung cancer. Multiple guidelines, including NCCN, ASCO, ESMO, and CSCO have adopted some of these works. Professor Jie Wang has contributed as a corresponding author to over 120 articles in international peer-reviewed journals, including J Clin Oncol, Lancet Oncol, Lancet Respir Med, JAMA Oncol, PNAS, and contributed to multiple editorials and textbooks.
