Jonathan Wang is a third-year PhD student under the advisement of Professor Eun Ji Chung in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California. His research interests include applications of kidney-targeted nanoparticles for renal disorders, focusing on polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Using engineered nanoparticles as carriers of currently approved drugs, this research aims to increase their therapeutic efficacy, reduce side effects, and create novel treatment strategies for renal disease.
Jonathan has first-authored two journal papers, and mentors various undergraduates and high school students in the lab. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.
