Residents conducting research in a lab

Resident conducting research in a labZhongbiao Wang, Ph.D., leads the departmental research effort. The major focus of our research laboratory are the vascular cellular responses to injury and inflammation. Of particular interests are the intracellular signaling pathways involved.

To help residents sustain their interest in surgical basic science, a research rotation will consist of two months during the residents' second year. In addition, the residents will be involved in a clinical research throughout their five years. The goal is to provide depth to their education in problem-based learning and improvement, and to provide opportunities to contribute to the surgical literature.
