Research and professional interests

Dr. Wang's research focuses on mechanisms underlying microvascular function in inflammation. Inflammation is associated with various diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. Vascular leak or hyperpermeability and increased leukocyte-endothelial interaction are hallmarks of inflammation.

Dr. Wang's laboratory uses animal and cell models to analyze endothelial signaling molecules and biological sex that regulate microvascular permeability and leukocyte-endothelial interaction under resting and stimulating conditions. Multiple research approaches have been employed in her research including intravital microscopy, cell culture, RT-PCR, immunoblot, flow cytometry, and immunostaining.
