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!

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!

Invited as Editorial Board Member of Journal of Biochemistry and Physiology.

Dr. Wang has been invited to serve as Editorial Board Member of Journal of Biochemistry and Physiology (JBP). JBP is an academic journal providing an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Biochemistry & Physiology. This Journal covers all areas of the life sciences from botany to medicine that are engaged in biochemical and physiological research. Biochemistry deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, which provide the structure of cells and perform many of the functions associated with life.

Sonia joined BIND lab!

Chemical Engineering freshman, Sonia Valdez, joined Wang Lab through Honors Mentor Program. Welcome aboard!

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.
