Chang Yi Wang (traditional Chinese: 王長怡; simplified Chinese: 王长怡), is an immunologist and astute organic chemist, best known for establishing a new platform in vaccines technology that employs designer peptide as key ingredients to be formulated into vaccines for the prevention and treatment of AIDS, HIV, Alzheimer disease, allergy and other emerging infectious diseases in both humans and animals. She is the founder of United Biomedical, Inc. (UBI) headquartered in Hauppauge, New York and its group of companies in Asia. Dr. Wang has served as Chief Scientific Officer of UBI since its inception in December 1985, and as Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer of the UBI Group of companies from 1998-2011. Dr. Wang is the author of over 120 peer-reviewed scientific publications and the inventor of over 100 patents to date. She has given various plenary lectures in the areas of Immunology, vaccination, immunotherapeutics and infectious diseases Infectious disease in many international conferences. She also serves on the scientific review committee for "Cooperative Research Partnerships for BioDefense" and “Allergy and Immunobiology” programs funded/administered by US National Institute of Health (NIH). In 2007, the New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) presented Dr. Wang with the US Inventor of the Year Award.[1]

Early life and academic education[edit]

Dr. Wang was born in Taipei, Taiwan, the home of Formosa. She attended the prestigious Taipei First Girls' High School, where she first became aware of the double helix structure of DNA which served as one of the primary motivators for her continuous lifetime pursuit of biomedical science. She majored in Chemistry at National Taiwan University where she graduated in 1973. Subsequently, she was the first Asian woman accepted into the graduate program at the Rockefeller University in the United States where she received a Ph.D. degree in 1979 with dual specialization in both Biochemistry and Immunology. Thereafter, she joined Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center where she became the youngest faculty member, principal investigator and head of the laboratory of molecular immunology, endowed by the Arthur J. and Leslie Levine Fund, at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center from 1979 to 1985 prior to becoming an entrepreneur founding United Biomedical, Inc in the United States and subsequently its subsidiaries in Asia.

Career in immunology and as an entrepreneur in the biomedical industry[edit]

Dr. Wang has been a pioneer in following a path with the concept of “Immunology as a secret weapon of medicine,” combined with a powerful motivation to develop medical interventions through the application of basic biomedical sciences. Her first applications and inventions in the field of immunological applications of Synthetic peptide were antibody screening immunoassays employing highly optimized synthetic viral peptide antigens. First was the development of a synthetic peptide based HIV 1 test and later an HIV 1,2 diagnostic test for blood screening, which received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approvals in 1989 and 1996, respectively. These tests were subsequently approved by WHO as suitable for worldwide use. Her other inventions in this area include synthetic peptide-based blood screening diagnostics for HTLV I/II, HCV Hepatitis C virus, which has CE certification and has been sold in the global market through Organon Teknika /Biomerieux since 1991, and the SARS Coronavirus, as well as diagnostic tests for the differentiation of infected vs. vaccinated animals for Foot and mouth disease. Since 1992, she has been encouraged by the support and guidance of Dr.James D. Watson, the co-discoverer of the double-helix structure of DNA Double helix structure in the courageous pursuit of many challenging vaccine and immunotherapeutic programs employing designer synthetic peptides Synthetic peptide. Dr. Wang's United Biomedical, Inc. also received Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Grand Challenges Explorations grant for a new approach to an AIDS vaccine.[2][3]

A pioneer to challenge the broad peptide claims of Chiron’s worldwide HCV patent[edit]

Dr. Wang‘s patent for diagnostic Hepatitis C virus (HCV) peptide epitopes was the first such patent issued in the United States for HCV. Partnering with distributor, Organon Teknika/Biomerieux, UBI’s peptide antigen based HCV blood screening test was a success in Europe in early 1990s. However, patent litigation ensued between Chiron et al. and UBI et al. regarding Chiron’s broadly claimed HCV epitope patent. Six Nobel laureates were involved as expert witnesses in the UK court regarding the validity of the broadly claimed Chiron HCV epitope/peptide patent. As a result of years of litigation through Dr. Wang’s valiant effort to put forth extensive technical arguments challenging the validity of Chiron’s HCV Hepatitis C virus peptide based claims, UBI’s arguments finally prevailed in 2000 in the UK Patent court presided over by the technical board to invalidate all HCV peptide based claims, which also resulted in a change in the UK patent law regarding section 44 in that “lack of support can be used to attack the breadth of patent claims even after the patent is issued.” This eventual result freed up the valuable future information to be derived from detailed RNA or DNA sequences for the benefit of research and follow up inventions using the vast amount of genomic sequences Genomic sequence generated by the biomedical community .

A pioneer in designer peptide based vaccines and immunotherapeutics as a new class of biologicals[edit]

For the past 25 years, Dr. Wang has dedicated herself to the discovery and development of a new class of biologicals comprising Immunotherapeutics and vaccine for the therapy and prevention of chronic and infectious diseases Chronic disease, and corresponding diagnostics for monitoring treatment and control of these diseases. The resultant peptide-based biologicals act by directing the immune system, and have exceptional potential in a wide range of therapeutic areas.

Under her direction, a new platform technology in peptide immunogen design called “UBITh“ for the development of innovative vaccines and immunotherapeutics was established. Site Specific UBITh Amyloid-β Vaccine Amyloid beta for Alzheimer disease, AIDS, and severe Allergic Disease Allergy; and for multiple animal health applications including pet contraception, Allergy, boar taint removal Boar taint and vaccine against infections caused by Porcine circovirus, Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus and Foot and mouth disease. Validation for the UBITh vaccine technology has been demonstrated by achievement of the long-sought goal to produce a synthetic peptide vaccine Synthetic peptide for Foot and mouth disease.

First Asian woman to receive New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) Inventor of the Year Award[edit]

The Inventor of the Year award from the New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) recognizes an individual or group who, through inventive talents, has made worthwhile contributions to society by promoting “the progress of Science and useful Arts.” Dr. Chang Yi Wang was the 2007 award recipient for her work in “UBITh Peptide Immunogens.” The inventions supporting the nomination of Dr. Wang are her synthetic peptide-based immunotherapeutics Synthetic peptide, vaccines Vaccine, and diagnostic tools.

Personal life[edit]

Dr. Wang divides her time between United States and Taiwan for her R&D and business development activities in biomedical applications. Her husband Nean Hu[4] devotes his time to UBI’s subsidiaries in Shanghai, China. She has one daughter.
