Research in the Wang Lab focuses on molecular imaging in the digestive tract and emphasizes the development and validation of novel molecular imaging methods and systems for early detection of disease.  We are located on the Medical School campus near the main hospital and in between the Engineering and Science campuses.

The Wang Lab focuses on cutting edge translational research that bridges the College of Engineering with the School of Medicine at the University of Michigan. Collaborative efforts between investigators from these two separate campuses accelerate biomedical research performed to advance high resolution imaging methods to investigate the molecular properties of biology and disease within the native tissue microenvironment in living animals and human subjects.
