Yijun’s abstract “Ex vivo Study of Nanowires in Mini-guts” has been invited as an oral presentation to the Society For Biomaterials 2017 Annual Meeting and Exposition: Where Materials become Medicine, being held April 5 – 8, 2017 in Minneapolis, MN, USA at the Minneapolis Convention Center. She will present her results at the session entitled “Multifunctional Biomaterial Design for Regenerative Tissue Engineering” on Thursday, April 6, 2017 from 6:15 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.. Congratulations~
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!
Undergraduate researchers from Wang Lab, Martin Asama and Seth Baetzold, presented their research results in 2016 AIChE Annual Meeting at San Francisco. Martin’s research topic is “Foaming Agents for Drug Delivery to Treat Inflammatory Bowel Disease”. Seth’s research topic is “PLGA Encapsulations of Apocynin for Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease”. Congratulations!
Chemical Engineering students, Branden Moreau, Matthew Schaschwary, Justin White, and Blaine Bristow joined Wang Lab as researcher to work on drug delivery, nanoparticles and stem cells projects. Welcome on board, gentlemen!
Dr. Wang was invited to deliver an Invited Lecture at ChinaNanomedicine 2016, the 2nd International Conference on Nanomedicine of China on October 18-21, 2016, Wuhan, China. The topic is “Ex vivo Study of Nanomaterials in Miniguts”. He also chaired the “Nanotoxicology and Nano-safety” session. The ChinaNanomedicine conferences in series provide an insightful and multi-disciplinary platform for discussions on novel functional nanomaterials with innovative capabilities for cutting-edge nanomedicine studies and applications, and their numerous challenges in clinical translation.
