Dr. Wang (b.1975) got his B.S. degree in Environmental Chemistry at Jilin University in 1995. He switched the major to Chemical Engineering and got his M.S. degree in 1998 from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences under the supervision of Prof. Xiaojun Ma. He pursued his Ph.D. education in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University between 2000 and 2004, studying drug and gene delivery with Drs. Fan Yuan (advisor) and Chuan-Yuan Li (co-advisor). Afterwards, Dr. Wang worked with Drs. Bruce Sullenger and Eli Gilboa at Duke University Medical Center before taking a faculty position at the University of Connecticut in August 2006. He received a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from NSF in 2010. Dr. Wang was promoted to associate professor with tenure in August 2011.

Research Interest

The essential objective of our research is to understand molecular recognition between engineered biomolecular nanostructures and their targets and, based on this understanding, to create biomimetic or bioinspired systems for various biomedical applications. For instance, it is a challenge to develop biomaterials that can mimic multiple functions of human tissues. We hypothesize that biomolecular nanostructures with the capability of molecular recognition can be incorporated into support materials for mimicking complex and dynamic roles of human tissues. Thus, the tissue-like biomaterials are able to “listen to” and “talk with” cells growing inside and outside of the biomaterials. We will apply diverse molecular recognition principles as a tool and will incorporate multiple components into the hydrogel, thereby “engineering” a single complex unit for regenerative medicine applications. We are also working on the development of biomimetic and bioinspired systems for drug delivery, biomolecular imaging, and cell biosensing.
