  • Jinglong Wang

    Jinglong Wang

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiation Biology

    BioDr. Wang was trained at the Jacques Monod Institute and École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France under the mentorship of Dr. Terence Strick. and obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Paris in 2019. He dissected the molecular machinery of human and bacterial NHEJ, and interrogated the mechanism of SpCas9 tolerance to non-specific substrate using single-molecule nanomanipulation tools.
    Jinglong’s research in the Frock Lab focuses on DSB-related chromosome topological changes and genomic interactions.

  • Xiaokang Wu

    Xiaokang Wu

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiovascular Institute

    BioAs a driven and inquisitive physician-scientist with a diverse background, Dr. Wu's research is centered on cardiovascular disease modeling (utilizing rodents and stem cells), molecular pathology, clinical genomics, and the development of novel therapeutics for cardiovascular diseases. I bring extensive experience in wet-lab experimentation, encompassing fundamental biomolecular techniques, cell culture, animal handling, cell and gene therapies, as well as large-scale next-generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation. Her multicultural exposure, coupled with advanced scientific training, equips me with a distinctive capacity for swift adaptation to new environments and tackling a wide range of projects. Currently, Dr. Wu spearheads research on transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis (ATTR), a rare and devastating protein misfolding disease. Utilizing iPSC, animal models, and human samples, her pioneering work promises significant insights into this life-threatening condition, aiming to enhance patient outcomes.
