Dr. Xiao Wang's primary research interest lies in the biology of myeloid cells, with a specific focus on the molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of sepsis. Dr. Wang is dedicated to uncovering the intricacies of monocyte differentiation and macrophage polarization in the context of sepsis, aiming to discover novel therapeutic strategies. Dr. Wang's work revolves around three main pillars: 1) Investigating the inflammatory mediators and microRNAs in sepsis, particularly as they relate to gut injury in animal models. 2) Exploring the roles and functions of myeloid cells, including dendritic cells and macrophages, in the inflammatory response. 3) Probing the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways involved in mucosal inflammation. Grounded in a strong medical science foundation, which was established through extensive studies in medical school and further enhanced by my graduate research in immunology, Dr. Wang has developed a long-term goal to deepen her understanding of disease processes, with a particular emphasis on sepsis pathogenesis. Dr. Wang's clinical expertise is in Intestinal Inflammatory Disease and Sepsis.
