William Wagner PhD

Cardiovascular engineering with projects that address medical device biocompatibility and design, tissue engineering, and imaging.     

Jing Hong Wang, MD, PhD

Wang’s research focuses on understanding how the immune system behaves within the microenvironment of a tumor in head and neck cancer and B cell lymphoma. She also studies how changes in the DNA of B cells alter how the body produces antibodies that are used to fight pathogens and cancer cells. Her research will shed light on how cancer cells evade detection by the immune system, findings that will help develop new immunotherapies and improve existing treatments.

Zhou Wang, PhD

His research is focused on androgen action in prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia.  The Wang lab is actively pursuing following research directions: (a) the roles of androgen-responsive genes in prostate carcinogenesis, particularly the mechanisms of tumor suppression by ELL-associated factor 2 (EAF2), which is encoded by up-regulated androgen-responsive gene U19, (b) improvement of intermittent androgen deprivation therapy of prostate cancer based on differential action of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT), (c) the mechanisms regulating androgen receptor (AR) intracellular trafficking, level and activity, and (d) developing novel small molecule inhibitors targeting AR signaling for the treatment of prostate cancer that are resistant to current anti-androgens

Leila Wehbe

I use machine learning and brain imaging to study the brain representations underlying language comprehension and other high-level functions.

Sally Wenzel MD

Focuses on asthma phenotypes and the molecular mechanisms, particularly in the airway epithelium that control them 

John Williams MD

the cell entry, immunity, and pathogenesis of human metapneumovirus (HMPV)

George Wittenberg, MD, PhD

The Laboratory for Research on Arm Function and Therapy (RAFT) studies upper extremity motor function in healthy and disease states and particularly focuses on methods to improve recovery of motor function after stroke, using non-invasive brain activity-recording and stimulation techniques, robots, and wearables.

Director, Rangos Research Center Animal Imaging Core

MuSIC 4 MIND: Multi-Systems Imaging Characterization for Mitochondrial Involvement in Neurological Diseases:

Leveraging novel systems imaging to uncover molecular mechanisms underlying epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, fetal alcohol syndrome, in utero exposure, congenital heart disease, mitochondrial disorders, childhood-onset epileptic encephalopathy and developmental origin of adult-onset diseases.
