Supported by: Bio-X
Mentor: Paul Bollyky, Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

Jason Yang's research in Dr. Paul Bollyky's lab focuses on a wound healing model done in mice induced with diabetes. This summer, Jason is bioengineering special hydrogels that can sustainably release cytokines, such as IL-2, on the wound bed.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 27, 2014:
