Dr. Xiaotian Wang earned her medical degree from Nantong University in Nantong, China and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology also at Nantong University. She pursued a fellowship at Peking Union College Hospital with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Beijing, China. She is Assistant Professor of Surgery of Brown University.
Dr. Wang has extensive experience and expertise in the field of gene therapy for tissue healing. She started to develop AAV2 vectors carrying growth factor genes for studying wound healing in 2003. Over almost two decades, she completed a number of projects using AAV2 vectors transferring growth factor genes to improve healing of injured tissues, including tendons, ischemic flaps, and diabetic wounds. She supervised design and construction of the AAV2 vectors, and tested the efficacies of growth factor gene transfers by AAV2 vectors in animal models.
