Dr. Wang is an active clinician; he regularly treats patients with kidney diseases at Baylor affiliated hospitals and teaches medical students, residents, and fellows at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Wang is also a scientist. His research interest is to elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of acute kidney injury and chronic renal fibrosis with a focus on the role of immune-inflammatory dysregulation in the pathogenesis of kidney injury and fibrosis. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School where he studied the role of inflammation in cardiac remodeling, which was supported by a NIH postdoctoral fellowship. After medical residency training, he completed a clinical fellowship in Nephrology at Baylor College of Medicine. During that period, he studied the role of stanniocalcin-1 in the regulation of oxidative stress and the role of myeloid fibroblast precursors in the pathogenesis of cardiac fibrosis in the setting of chronic kidney disease. He was awarded a NIH Clinical Scientist Career Development Award. After joining the faculty in Nephrology at Baylor, he has been investigating novel factors initiating and controlling acute kidney injury and chronic renal fibrosis.
