Wilson Wong, Ph.D.

Boston University

Bio:

Dr. Wilson Wong is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University.  He is also a founding member of the Biological Design Center. He received his B.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from UC Berkeley and UCLA, respectively. He obtained his postdoctoral training from UCSF. Dr. Wong's lab combines engineering, biological network design, molecular biology, and immunology to develop genetic tools for basic biomedical research and cell and gene therapy.  A specific goal is to design robust and reliable methods to perform complex cellular computations in a spatiotemporally controlled manner, which will have significant implications in engineering complex tissues and designing cellular therapy with improved safety and specificity. Dr. Wong's research has been recognized by the NIH Director's New Innovator Award, NSF CAREER Award, ACS Synthetic Biology Young Investigator Award, and the College of Engineering Early Career Excellence in Research Award.
