NIH/NIGMS Exploratory R21 funded!

Working with Dr. Mansell (PI), Dr. Wang has been awarded the National Institutes of Health (NIH)/ National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) Exploratory Research R21. Wang Lab and Mansell Lab will work together to co-culture engineered probiotic bacteria to accurately monitor and actively influence the development of intestinal epithelial cells in 3D culture. Congratulation!

PhRMA Foundation Research Starter awarded!

Wang Lab has been awarded the 2017 PhRMA Foundation Research Starter Grant in Translational Medicine & Therapeutics. Thanks to PhRMA Foundation for the kind support on the research in my Lab.

Wang Lab got support from Exploratory Research Project Grant!

Wang Lab got support from College of Engineering Exploratory Research Project (ERP)! The goal of this grant program is to make resources available to initiate the development of high-risk, high-impact, novel ideas for new research projects. The goal of this COE ERP is to enable the development of precisely medical solutions to improve gastrointestinal (GI) health. Congratulations!

Dr. Wang presented at Kenneth Rainin Foundation Innovations Symposium

Dr. Wang presented the poster titled “An Intestinal Trojan horse as Regenerative Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Disease”  at the Kenneth Rainin Foundation Innovations Symposium: Wound Healing, Repair & IBD on July 20-21, 2015 at the Hyatt Embarcadero in San Francisco.  The Kenneth Rainin Foundation’s annual Innovations Symposium brings together influential and collaborative researchers, and innovative and creative thinkers to work toward the common goal of curing Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The 2015 Innovations Symposium focus on Wound Healing, Repair & IBD, and take part in setting new directions in the field of IBD research.

CCFA Career Award got funded!

Dr. Wang has been awarded the 2015 Career Development Award from Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA). Thanks to CCFA for the kind support on the intestinal stem cells research in Wang Lab.

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!

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.

Ufuoma got scholarship!

Ufuoma Ikoba, an undergraduate researcher in Wang Lab, has been accepted to the Iowa Illinois Nebraska STEM Partnership for Innovation in Research and Education (IINSPIRE-LSAMP) Research program as an intern with scholarship. IINSPIRE-LSAMP is an alliance among sixteen state, private, and community colleges in Iowa, Illinois, and Nebraska, working together to broaden the participation of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education the Midwest. Congratulations~

PIIR funded!

As a co-investigator, Dr. Wang’s proposal “Integrated, Interdisciplinary Vaccine Research Against Antigenically Diverse Viruses” just got funded by ISU President’s Initiative on Interdisciplinary Research (PIIR) program with $1.5M in three years. Congratulations!
