Smiley face   Molecular Engineering for Cellular Imaging and Reprogramming

Principal Investigators

Peter Yingxiao Wang

Professor of Bioengineering

Email: yiw015@eng.ucsd.edu

Dr. Wang obtained a Ph. D. in Bioengineering at UCSD. He worked at University of Illinois as an assistant professor and an associate professor. He is interested in molecular engineering, fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), live cell imaging, and bio-nanotechnology to visualize and elucidate the molecular mechanisms by which live cells perceive the environment and to engineer machinery molecules for the reprogramming of cellular functions.

Shaoying (Kathy) Lu

Project Scientist and Co-PI

Dr. Lu obtained a Ph. D. in Computational Mathematics at UCSD. Dr. Lu is working on image-driven mathematical and systems biology, with applications on live cell imaging for molecular transport, activation, and interactions.





Highschool Students

Jeffrey Wang

Jeffrey Wang is working with Dr. Kathy Lu a medical image recognition program with convolutional neural networks. He currently studies at the Bishop's School, and he is excited to tap into the power of machine learning for an effective solution. Jeffrey is fluent in Java, Python, HTML, and MatLab/Octave.
