Dr. Wang is an assistant professor of surgery. He is Co-Director of the Surgical Bioengineering Laboratory at UC Davis School of Medicine. Dr. Wang was trained in biology at Tsinghua University, China, and had undergone postdoctoral training at UC Berkeley Department of Bioengineering and Berkeley Stem Cell Center with a postdoctoral fellowship from California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). He is a faculty member of UC Davis since 2012. Dr. Wang's research goal is to develop novel technologies that combine stem cell engineering and biomaterial engineering to promote tissue regeneration. One line of research is the study of stem cell contribution to vascular disease development (atherosclerosis etc.) and wound healing process (foreign body reaction and scar formation). Another line of research is the combination of stem cell engineering (stem cell identification, directed differentiation and delivery mechanisms) and biomaterial technology (nanomaterials, surface modification, biomolecule immobilization and drug delivery) for tissue regeneration.
