Joyce Wong's Biography



Joyce Wong, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering, Boston University

Dr. Joyce Y. Wong (Fellow AAAS, AIMBE, BMES) is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering, and a College of Engineering Distinguished Faculty Fellow at Boston University. Her research is in the area of developing biomaterials for the early detection and treatment of disease. Her current projects include bioengineered patches for congenital heart defects in pediatric patients, targeted ultrasound theranostic agents to treat abdominal surgical adhesions, and targeted nanoparticle magnetic resonance imaging contrast agents for early detection of cardiovascular disease. She has published over 100 peer-reviewed publications, 11 pending or issued patents (is a graduate of the NSF I-CORPS program), and has mentored over 100 trainees. In 2017 she received the Charles DeLisi Distinguished Lecture and Award, the highest honor in Boston University’s College of Engineering. She is on the editorial board of several journals and in 2017 was a Volume Organizer for the Materials Research Society Bulletin. She is Associate Editor of the Journal of Biomedical Materials (Institute of Physics). In 2014, as the Inaugural Director of a Boston University Provost Initiative promoting women in STEM at all levels, she launched ARROWS (Advance, Recruit, Retain & Organize Women in STEM). In 2018, she received the Advocate of the Year AWARD from BU GWISE (Graduate Women in Science and Engineering).

Vascular Patches for Pediatric Vascular Tissue Engineering

Tuesday, 10 February 2015 at 15:00

Add to Calendar ▼2015-02-10 15:00:002015-02-10 16:00:00Europe/LondonVascular Patches for Pediatric Vascular Tissue EngineeringSELECTBIOenquiries@selectbiosciences.com

This talk will focus on methods to generate vascular patches for pediatric vascular tissue engineering applications. We have developed methods involving cell sheet engineering to control the structural organization and functional properties of vascular patches. We will also discuss how computational methods can be integrated with experimental techniques for iterative tissue engineering design and validation.
