Qiuke Wang is a PhD student in the field of Osteoarthritis disease. From 2016 to 2019, he finished his Master of Surgery in Shanghai Jiao Tong University affiliated sixth people's hospital (Shanghai, China).

He was doing research on surgical outcomes of orthopedic trauma related diseases, including proximal humeral fracture, humeral shaft fracture and ankle fracture. During the years he was working as a researcher at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Also, he was working as a surgery resident at Shanghai Jiao Tong University affiliated sixth people's hospital and finished his 3-year surgical training.

His current research focuses on CREDO study (criteria for early diagnosis of osteoarthritis), especially for knee osteoarthritis.

The aims of his research are to identify factors drive the diagnosis of different kinds of physicians for knee osteoarthritis and build robust predictive disease model based on early symptoms and signs for knee osteoarthritis as well as validate the model in external database. The results are expected to be presented from May 2020.


Recent Findings 

Previous studies in the lab have shown that autologous dendritic cells pulsed with allogenic tumor cell lysate was able to induce peripheral T cell activation and tumor-reactive T cell responses in patients with mesothelioma and pancreatic cancer. Current research focuses on how to initiate an effective immune response in the tumor as well as the tumor-draining lymph node using dendritic cell vaccination. Furthermore, we are studying novel approaches for (personalized) vaccination. In addition, we have identified T cell characteristics that underlie clinical efficacy of immune check inhibitors or chemotherapeutic agents in mesothelioma. The selected publications below give an impression of our work.
