Brief Biography

Professor Wen Wang obtained his PhD in bioengineering at Imperial College London in 1993. Following his postdoctoral research at University of Manchester and his Wellcome Trust Fellowship in the Medical School of Imperial College London, he joined Queen Mary University of London as one of the founding members of the Queen Mary Biomedical Engineering programme and subsequently had his Professorship in Biomedical Engineering in 2003. Supported by a Royal Academy of Engineering Global Research Award, he joined the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard in 2007 and then worked in the Department of Biological Engineering at MIT on a NIH international project. After his return from the US in 2009, he took on a number of leadership roles at Queen Mary, including Dean for Research of the Faculty of Science and Engineering and Head of School of Engineering and Materials Science. He was elected to the Council in 2017 and was appointed the Deputy VP for Science and Engineering in January 2018. He is the Vice Principal and Executive Dean for Science and Engineering from July 2018.

Wen is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, a Fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. His work on the vascular bioengineering and biomaterials is supported by the Wellcome Trust, the British Heart Foundation, EPSRC and industry. He has more than 120 publications in leading journals, including PNAS, JFM and Circulation.
