Prof. Dong Wang graduated from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2011 with a Ph.D. degree. After that, he was working at the University of California, Berkeley and Los Angeles from 2011 to 2018 as a Postdoctoral Fellow funded by the Siebel Foundation. He joined Qingdao University in 2018 as an associated professor.
Our research group has been focusing on Stem Cell Biology and Biomedical Engineering. We are using state-of-the-art technologies, including transgenic animal models, intravital single-cell imaging, high-throughput sequencing, microfabrication and organ-on-a-chip technologies, to investigate the regulatory mechanisms of stem cells in tissue regeneration and cancer development. At the same time, we put more effort in clinical research to explore the application of stem cells in regenerative medicine, cancer diagnosis and therapy.
