The Wang Lab is part of the newly established the Precision Health Program of College of Human Medicine, located on the 3rd floor of the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering (IQ Building). Our expertise in molecular and cellular biology, in vivo imaging, diabetic animal models and cell transplantation offers an exciting and unique environment to perform state-of-the-art translational biomedical research with top scientists in the field. We focus on applications of molecular imaging methods (magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic particle imaging, optical imaging) monitoring transplanted pancreatic islets and stem cells, with a particular emphasis on the theranostic protection of the transplanted graft cells. Our goal is to develop and use these new methods to track and protect transplanted islets and differentiated stem cells for diabetes treatment. Students will be expected to help with routine laboratory tasks, and get involved in research. You will have the opportunity to acquire advanced laboratory training and mentor-ship, in a hands-on, collaborative environment. You may also have an opportunity to contribute to and co-author papers.
Students who are interested in cell biology, in vivo imaging, diabetic animal models and cell transplantation are all encouraged to apply. GPA of 3.3 or higher required, 8-10 hours/week minimum time in the lab. To apply send a cover letter with your scientific interests, career goals and why you want to work with us, and an updated CV to email@example.com.
