Wang, Julie Tzu-Wen

Senior Research and Teaching Fellow

King's College, London, UK


I am currently a senior research and teaching fellow in Nanomedicine in the School of Cancer and Pharmaceutical Sciences at King’s College London. The focus of my research is on the pre-clinical translation of nanomedicines for image-guided delivery of drug/gene/radionuclide.  

Existing collaborations relevant to drug delivery

Prof KT Al-Jamal, KCL (Nanomedicine and Drug Delivery)

Prof NJ Abbott and Dr J Preston, KCL (Blood Brain Barrier)

G Tobias, ICMAB-CSIC, Barcelona, Spain (Carbon nanotube growth and filling)

Dr J Sosabowski, Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, UK (Radiolabelling and nuclear imaging)

Prof NTK Thanh, UCL & The Royal Institution of Great Britain, UK (Biomagnetic nanomaterials)

Dr WT Al-Jamal, School of Pharmacy, Queen's University Belfast (Nanomedicine and Prostate cancer)

Prof D Tuncel, Bilkent University, Turkey (Chemistry and Nanotechnology).
