Dr. Wang's research includes investigating the clinical effectiveness and safety of endoscopic techniques and technologies in the management of gastrointestinal diseases. Current clinical areas of interest and investigation include: 1) advanced optical imaging endoscopy (narrow-band imaging) in the detection and diagnosis of GI neoplasia, including early GI cancers, 2) endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for the treatment of HGD and early GI malignancies, 3) advanced techniques and technologies in the endoscopic treatment of pancreatico-biliary disease via ERCP and EUS, 4) clinical factors associated with gastrointestinal bleeding and endoscopy.
