Ray of Hope 5K Run/ 2K Walk for Ovarian Cancer Research (in person race with virtual option) @ Hoyt Park 1800 N Swan Blvd Wauwatosa, WI US 53226

Join us September 25th for the Ray of Hope’s 3rd Annual Race! Help us run or walk to raise funds for ovarian cancer. All proceeds go directly to our researchers working hard to identify novel targets and treatment strategies to cure ovarian cancer.

Ray of Hope is a non-profit organization established in 2018 in the Greater Milwaukee Area in response to the need for more advocacy for ovarian cancer awareness and research. Ray of hope provides philanthropic support to ovarian cancer researchers like us to generate preliminary data to apply for high-risk and high-reward federal grants. Ray of hope believes in the bravery of all women who have fought or are fighting against ovarian cancer. Ray of hope is working for women around the globe to be brave and resilient in the fight against ovarian cancer – – and their bravery should not go unnoticed.

Sunila Pradeep, PhD’s laboratory is partnering in the mission of Ray of Hope by identifying novel targets and treatment strategies to cure ovarian cancer.

Presented by

Bo Wang, PhD
Director – Tissue Regenerative Engineering Laboratory (TRE Lab)
Assistant Professor – Department of Biomedical Engineering, The Marquette University and Medical College of Wisconsin


Dr. Bo Wang, Director and Principal Investigator of the TRE Lab, received her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Mississippi State University in 2012 and completed her Postdoctoral Fellowship at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, Department of Surgery, in 2016. She joined the Marquette-MCW Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering in January of 2019 with research interests that include stem cell engineering, hard-tissue engineering and 3D bioprinting, as well as vascular tissue engineering, imaging, modeling and simulation.

The Tissue Regenerative Engineering Laboratory is developing bio-functional engineered tissues that provide advanced therapeutic options for such conditions as birth defects, bone disorders, and liver and vascular diseases. To do this, the TRE Lab will first develop a greater understanding of the biological and molecular processes involved in regenerative regression.
