Dr. Wang’s research interests include cellular and molecular mechanisms of cardiac remodeling associated with chronic kidney disease and the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease in hypertension and diabetes. Specifically, he is investigating in the role of bone marrow-derived fibroblast precursor cells and inflammation in the pathogenesis of cardiac and renal fibrosis.
Dr. Wang’s clinical interests include hypertension, diabetic nephropathy, and glomerulonephritis.
