Hao Wang

Hao Wang was a postdoctoral associate in both the Boyden Lab and the Tsai Lab at MIT. He received a B.S. degree in biotechnology at Shenzhen University and completed his Ph.D. studies in the Department of Molecular Medicine / Neuroscience at The Scripps Research Institute. During his doctoral studies, Hao combined tools in biophysics and neuroscience to unveil roles of membrane nanostructure modulation in biological regulation, in the context of Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injury, inflammation and viral infection. While in the lab, he was interested in developing novel techniques for lipid research and applying them to investigate aging and neurodegeneration.
