Dr. Wang, the Scientific Co-Director of Experimental Imaging Laboratory for the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami, is an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Electric and Computer Engineering. After MD training in China, Dr. Wang obtained his PhD in vision science at University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Canada. He came to the University of Miami in July, 2006 from the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY. Dr. Wang has established the advanced ophthalmic imaging laboratory at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute and is working closely with a group of neuro-ophthalmologists to study vasculature in the eye and neurological disorders. His research focuses on imaging microvasculature and microstructure of the eye as a window of the central nerve system. Currently, he and his collaborators in the Evelyn F. McKnight Center for Age Related Memory Loss are working on ocular microvascular dysfunction in age-related dementia. The aim of the study is to determine whether microvascular dysfunction plays a role in age related memory loss.
