Yuan Wan

Assistant Professor

Biomedical Engineering

Background

Yuan Wan received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2012. He then worked as a research associate at the University of South Australia until his postdoc training at the Pennsylvania State University for three years.

His decade-long research has been focusing on in vitro diagnostics of cancer and drug delivery for targeted therapeutics. He develops biomimetic micro/nano-technologies to help solve problems in life science and, on the other hand, translate these technologies into clinical use. His ongoing research interests lie at the cross-section of biomedical engineering and clinical medicine.
