Yearly Archives: 2014

Tianjian and Yijun, welcome aboard!

Graduate student Tianjian Tong joined Wang Lab to work on oral delivery nanovaccine project. Chemical engineering senior Yijun Qi joined Wang Lab to work on liposomes drug carriers for Parkinson’s disease. Welcome aboard!

Paule and Alex joined BIND lab!

Chemical Engineering students Paule Pochangou and Alex Hall joined BIND Lab. Welcome aboard!

Wang Lab got support from McGee-Wagner Foundation!

Wang Lab received the three-year financial support from McGee-Wagner Interdisciplinary Research Foundation, which was established to foster collaborative research that involves faculty members from both the College of Engineering and the College of Veterinary Medicine. Wang Lab really appreciated the kind donation!

JBN Increased to 7.578!

The 2013 Impact Factor of Journal of Biomedical Nanotechnology (JBN) has increased to 7.578! It’s another milestone of JBN. Congratulations~

The 2013 Impact Factor of International Journal of Pharmaceutics (IJP) is 3.785. It’s higher than 2012’s 3.458. Congratulations!

Welcome, Sean!

Sean Giza joined Wang Lab as a 2014 BioMaP REU student. The BioMaP program creates novel research experiences for undergrad students from around the country in the areas of biological materials and processes, often referred to as “BioMaP.” In this summer, Sean will design new nanoparticles to penetrate BBB for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Welcome, Sean!


Wang Lab got Cyclone Grant!

Wang Lab received Cyclone Research Partnership Grant from College of Engineering to investigate transport mechanisms of nanoparticles across intestinal epithelium. Understanding how nanoparticles can be transport through digestive tract epithelium, and how transport behavior can be manipulated through chemical modification to the nanoparticles will provide critical knowledge on future design and development of effective drug and/or vaccine delivery systems for oral administration. Wang Lab appreciated the kind support from Iowa State University.

Dr. Wang gave a presentation at Omega Chi Epsilon.

Dr. Wang was invited to give a presentation about Intestinal Engineering at Omega Chi Epsilon. Omega Chi Epsilon (or ΩΧΕ, sometimes simplified to OXE) is an American honor society for chemical engineering students. Iowa State University was the second institute to form the chapter in 1932. OXE is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies.

Tong Shao joined BIND lab!

As a senior in Chemical Engineering, Tong Shao joined BIND lab to perform research on investigating transport of drug loaded nanoparticles across intestinal epithelium cells. She will continue her summer intern in BIND lab. Welcome!

Evan joined BIND lab!

As a chemical engineer, Evan Tentinger has enthusiasm in stem cells. He joins BIND lab to perform cutting edge research in the area of intestinal engineering. Welcome aboard!
