D. Wang, MSc (Danni)

Promovendus - Systems Chemistry
Systems Chemistry, supervised by Daniela Wilson


Danni Wang received her BSc. degree in Macromolecular Science in 2016 and MSc. degree in Chemistry and Physics of Polymers in 2019 from Fudan University, Shanghai (China). During her master’s program, she focused on the design of injectable chemically cross-linking hydrogels for biomedical applications like 3D cell culture, drug delivery, hemostasis and ectopic cartilage regeneration. Early in 2019, She joined Prof. Roeland Nolte’s group at Radboud as a Junior Researcher and studied the Interaction between Chiral Porphyrin Cage Compounds (chiral hosts) and Viologens (guests) for two months. She is now a Phd candidate in Prof. Daniela Wilson’s group focusing on the biomedical applications of micro/nanomotors.

Projects for students

Micro/nanomotors provide considerable promise for biomedical applications, such as drug delivery, bioimaging and wound healing, etc. Students looking for research internships in the Wilson Lab, and with a strong interest in these biomedical applications of micro/nanomotors, are welcome to talk to Danni Wang about relevant project opportunities.
