BioDr. Wang is a board-certified dermatologist. She is also a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
Dr. Wang is fellowship-trained in dermatopathology. Her clinical interests include medical dermatology and cutaneous oncology, including melanoma, high-risk skin cancer, and cutaneous lymphoma.
Her research interests span the histopathologic characterization of rare skin disorders and improving the detection and treatment of skin cancers. She has received grants to advance applications of the principles of precision medicine in dermatopathology.
Dr. Wang has co-authored articles on uncommon dermatologic conditions, the dermatologic side effects of cancer treatments, and novel histopathologic findings in various diseases of the skin. Her work has appeared in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Journal of Cutaneous Pathology, American Journal of Dermatopathology, American Journal of Surgical Pathology, and elsewhere.
She has given presentations on topics such as the histopathologic features of a cutaneous lymphoma therapy-related rash, microscopic findings in a rare form of epidermolysis bullosa, and an unusual case of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis. Dr. Wang has presented at the American Society of Dermatopathology Annual Meeting, Medical Dermatology Society Annual Meeting, World Congress of Cutaneous Lymphoma, and other conferences in the US and worldwide.
Named outstanding volunteer physician by Cardinal Free Clinics, Dr. Wang’s services have included providing annual skin cancer screenings and education to Stanford NCAA student athletes, examining patients with dermatologic conditions at Stanford’s student-run free clinics, and teaching Stanford medical students about dermatology through interactive didactic sessions.

Associate Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Cellular Therapy) and, by courtesy, of Dermatology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interest is on immunotherapy (including allogeneic transplant) of cancer. I have studies the mechanism of monoclonal antibody therapy in lymphoma patients and am currently working on designing new strategy to enhance the clinical efficacy of antibody therapy by infusing expanded NK cells. I am also interested in using tumor vaccine along with hematopoietic cell transplant.
