Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Dale fellow

Liang is a Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Dale fellow. He is establishing a lab to study the processes involved in formation of heparan sulfate, one of the essential polysaccharide (sugar) molecules produced by the body.

He studied Medicinal Chemistry at UCL, followed by a PhD at Cambridge studying the interactions between proteins and noncoding RNAs. He then moved to York for a postdoc, investigating the structures of sugar processing enzymes and their roles in biology, which is where his interest remains today.
