[July 2020] Nature Methods highlighted our dendritic cell metabolic labeling and targeting work recently published in Nature Materials. Check out here: https://rdcu.be/b5plp

[May 2020] Our Nature Materials paper is now online! We reported a technology, based on immune cell-homing biomaterials and metabolic sugar labeling, to metabolically label, track, and target dendritic cells in vivo. This technology has great potential to improve a variety of immunotherapies in the context of different diseases including cancers.

[May 2020] Wang Research Lab will officially open in August 2020!
