Eu Sheng Wang
A passionately curious molecular biotechnologist who graduated with a bachelor’s in Plant Biotechnology (2010) and PhD in Biotechnology (2016) from the University of Nottingham. I joined the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU- Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet) in 2017 where I conducted research on the development of disease resistant potato varieties with the Department of Plant Protection Biology. I have recently joined the Department of Plant Breeding to further my research into the development of a transformation pipeline for the genetic engineering of oil crops.


I have a strong interest in the biotechnological approach for the improvement of crop plants, including: plants as bioreactors for the expression of transgenic proteins; chloroplast biology and biotechnology; synthetic biology; and, molecular plant pathology.

Over the last 8 years, I have developed extensive regional and international networks with researchers and research laboratories dedicated to the sustainable development of:

- biopharmaceuticals using plant production platforms
- research on energy and oil crops
- sustainable food production strategies


I have lectured and supervised students at the undergraduate, masters and PhD levels in areas relating to biotechnology with particular emphasis on plastid biotechnology and plant genetic engineering.
