Jeffrey Bond Wang
Hailing originally from the Midwest, Jeffrey is currently an MD/PhD candidate in Stanford’s Biophysics Program. He studied Applied Mathematics as an undergraduate at Harvard University, working with Chris Rycroft on developing numerical methods for modeling biomechanical processes and large biological networks. Since then, Jeffrey’s interests have expanded towards mapping neural circuits mediating the effects of anesthetic and psychiatric drugs. He is now working with Raag Airan, Kim Butts-Pauly, and Brian Knutson on using focused ultrasound to noninvasively deliver these agents to specific parts of the brain to ideally maximize their therapeutic efficacy while minimizing other off-target effects.
