    Wang Hua
    Title Deputy chief physician

    I have been engaged in the research of molecular stratification diagnosis and accurate treatment of hematological tumors for a long time. I have made innovative achievements in the recurrence of hematological tumors, the treatment of drug resistance and its mechanism, and the optimization of clinical treatment. The 5-year survival rate of the treated patients can reach the international leading level. A series of explorations have been carried out in the field of individualized treatment and prognosis of hematological tumors. The results are cited by the American NCCN guidelines and are widely used all over the world. Presided over the research of National Nature Fund, Guangdong Nature Fund, Guangdong Science and Technology Program, Guangdong Department of Health, etc., selected into the Young teacher training Program of Sun Yat-sen University, participated in writing 4 academic monographs, and published more than 30 related academic papers in international mainstream authoritative magazines such as BJC,  JHO, Oncotarget, BMC Cancer, etc.
