Yue Wang's research focuses on the designed synthesis of silica nanoparticles as nano-carriers for bio-applications.

In recent decades, the efficient delivery of large molecules has drawn extensive attention. Limited by the poor stability and cell-membrane impermeability of large biomolecules, delivery vehicles are highly desired to immobilize the molecules and improve their delivery efficiency. Yue Wang is devoted in the designed synthesis of MSNs with tailored structure and improved therapeutic performance in bio-applications.

Yue obtained the Bachelor degree in bio-engineering at Tianjin University. In 2016, Yue completed the MPhil study at the University of Queensland (UQ) in biomedical engineering under the supervision of Professor Chengzhong (MIchael) Yu.

Industry Engagement and Collaborations

Yue Wang is working on one project industrial cooperated with Anpario plc (UK).
