Wang Lab

Welcome to the
Lab of Dr. DaZhi Wang

Wang Lab


Our lab is interested in the molecular mechanisms that regulate cardiac and skeletal muscle development and how they are disrupted in human cardiovascular diseases. Over the past ten years, we have focused on the role of non-coding RNAs, including microRNAs (miRNAs) and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), in the regulation of gene expression.

Dr. Wang is also the inaugural director of the newly created Center for Regenerative Medicine here at USF Health. Future studies will include cutting edge new studies in the mechanisms regulating cell and tissue renewal and investigations into approaches to leverage these findings for disease therapies.
