Director of Medical Research
Maxwell Wang, MD, PhD
Dr. Wang received his MD degree from Wuerzburg University in Germany and PhD degree from University of Aberdeen, UK, following which he continued extensive research at the University of Connecticut Health Center.
During his academia Dr. Wang was the first to find the paracrine and autocrine effects of CCN family genes (genes relating to connective tissue growth) in bone cell differentiation and the capability of bone marrow-derived CTGF-GFP cells to increase bone formation.
Dr. Wang is an orthopedic surgeon with over 10 years of experience in academic research focused on mesenchymal stem cells and bone cells. His extensive experience in the field of stem cells, particularly as applied to orthopedics, is a valuable asset to CBMG’s Knee Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis projects.
