Dr. Wong's research focuses on the development of biomaterials for the detection and treatment of cardiovascular disease. The approach of her laboratory is to probe how structure, material properties and composition of the cell-biomaterial interface affect fundamental cellular processes. Her current research interests include tissue engineering solutions for pediatric vascular surgical repair and reconstruction; development of targeted nano- and micro-particle contrast agents for multi-modal (magnetic resonance, ultrasound, and optical) detection of atherosclerotic and vulnerable plaque; and engineering biomimetic systems to study the cellular and molecular processes underlying restenosis.
