Qinchuan Wang, Ph.D.

Qinchuan Wang, Ph.D., is the Ethan and Karen Leder CIM HAP 2021 Scholar. Dr. Wang is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiology in the Department of Medicine at Johns Hopkins. Using new molecular tools and genetically engineered animal models, he has a long focus on the role that oxidated CaMKII plays in cardiovascular disease. Given that its oxidation is highly related to functional decline, Dr. Wang will pursue additional studies of CaMkll in skeletal muscles and work to determine a role for oxidative stress in aging related functional declines as part of his HAP scholarship. He will work closely with clinical translational experts within the HAP program to identify and develop clinical uses for his discoveries.
