Dr. Sing-Wan Wong
Dr. Wong is an assistant professor of Department of Mechanical Engineering. His primary research interest is to develop cell-based therapeutic for various diseases. Dr. Wong’s research aims to engineer mesenchymal stromal/stem cells (MSCs) and tissue progenitor cells through mechanobiological approaches by combining biomaterials design and microfluidic platform. The goal is to investigate the optimum biophysical cue that direct the secretome profile from the engineered cells, to regulate extracellular matrix remodeling, oxidative stress or facilitate proliferation/differentiation of tissue progenitor cells. Then applying the therapeutic cells in vivo to treat fibrosis and promote tissue regeneration in musculoskeletal system
Dr. Wong earned the degree in biology and PhD in Biomedical Engineering in The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He then started his post-doctoral training in University of Illinois at Chicago. In 2021, Dr. Wong receives NIH Pathway of Independence award (K99/R00) from National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), then joins CSU in 2022 as an assistant professor.
Dr. Wong’s lab is now recruiting graduate students and Post-docs. Interested candidates can send their application and CV to Sing-Wan.Wong@colostate.edu
