He has been working on a number of projects in surface chemistry and surface biophysics, including biosensor development based on Langmuir-Blodgett films and self-assembled monolayers.

Dr. Wang did two-year post-doctoral study in the Department of Physics at Florida International University, where he worked on different optical and nanotechnology-based sensor projects including a number of projects that applied bi-cell surface plasmon resonance (SPR) detection. Since joining Nomadics in 2001, he has worked on National Science Foundation (NSF)-sponsored projects involving nano-bioconjugates, in which the research team has achieved very promising results in the production of nanoparticle-labeled immunosensors based on fluorescence resonance energy transfer. He served as technical lead on a DARPA-sponsored project and principal investigator (PI) on an Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology-sponsored project to develop nanomaterial-based scaffolds for tissue engineering. Dr. Wang is also the PI of a DOD funded project, to develop artificial skin for treatment of cutaneous vesicant injury, using 3D scaffold and stem cell technology. In addition, Dr. Wang served as the PI on two NSF and DOE funded projects involving SPR biosensors and imaging with nanostructures, including the differential SPR project to develop an optical, electrochemistry combined sensor to monitor metal ions in water. Dr. Wang has 40+ peer-reviewed journal publications and book chapters, 19 conference presentations, and several pending patents. Dr. Wang is a member of editorial board of Journal of Biomedical Nanotechnology.

Current nano-related research projects
1. Development of artificial skin based on biodegradable 3D inverted colloidal crystal scaffold, for treatment of cutaneous vesicant injury.
2. Development of a rapid cell-based toxicity sensor using integrated microring resonators as signal transducer.
3. Design and fabricate nanoparticle self-lighting photodynamic therapy for ovarian cancer treatment.


Dr. Shaopeng Wang holds a BS in biology and an MS in biophysics. He received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Miami in 1999.
