Please join us for a presentation by Dr. Wang, one of the candidates under consideration for the new tissue engineering faculty position in the department. He will present his work on Friday, Nov 5 at 8AM (email CSRmail@partners.org for zoom details) entitled “Elucidating Spatial Regulators of Skeletal Muscle Regeneration and Aging”.
Dr. Wang received his BS and PhD degrees from the University of Ottawa in Biomedical Sciences and cellular molecular medicine respectively. Currently, he is a postdoctoral fellow Stem Cell Biology, Bioengineering, and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford University. A recent recipient of a K99/R00 award, Dr. Wang has been training with Dr. Helen Blau, where he has recently been promoted to a Senior Scientist. As an experienced skeletal muscle and stem cell biologist, he is interested in elucidating critical cellular interactions and regulators of tissue-specific stem cells for use in regenerative medicines.
His research is translationally oriented and utilizes interdisciplinary molecular, genetic, computational, and bioengineering approaches to view biology and disease
from new perspectives. His lab will combine multi-omics sequencing and imaging methods to resolve how different cell types in the musculoskeletal system work together, identify targetable disease mechanisms through collaborations with clinicians, and develop therapies that promote regeneration.
