Scholarship Description:

Dr. Jing Wang’s lab in the Medical College of Georgia (MCG), Augusta University, is seeking motivated researchers who are eager to dedicate to retinal neurovascular research at multiple levels (Postdoctoral fellow, Research assistant/associate, visiting scholars, visiting PhD students,).Our lab focuses on retinal neurovascular biology and mechanisms of immune, neuron and vascular interaction that control retinal neurovascular function during health and disease. We seek to develop novel strategies for cell survival, vascular repair and revascularization in diseases like retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). One of our leading project investigates the role of a unique molecular chaperone in retinal vascular development, and immune, neuron and vascular protection in ROP.

Augusta University is Georgia’s innovation center for education and health care, training the next generation of innovators, leaders, and healthcare providers in classrooms and clinics on four campuses in Augusta and locations across the state. The Medical College of Georgia (MCG) is one of the nation’s largest medical schools by class size (260 students per class). The educational experience is anchored by the main campus in Augusta, regional clinical campuses for third- and fourth-year students across the state and a second four-year campus in Athens in partnership with the University of Georgia.
