Professor Wen Wang FREng
Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Vice-Principal and Executive Dean for Science and Engineering, Queen Mary University of London
Wen Wang is distinguished for his insightful achievements in cardiovascular bioengineering, specifically in biofluid mechanics related to the molecular lining of blood vessels and the transport of fluid and solutes across the wall of blood vessels. These transport mechanisms affect the response of the blood vessels to mechanical stimulation and thus to the development of vascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis, and the repair of the vascular endothelium after injury.
His work has empowered the development of drug containing microcapsules able to cross blood vessel walls allowing the treatment of vascular diseases.
