Why I'm a JPAL

I would like to share my expertise and experiences on new product development to those who are passionate and innovative within JLABS to help them overcome obstacles and reach to success.


Allen Wang is a Principal Scientist/Technical Lead at Ethicon Biosurgery, a medical device subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. In 2008, after obtaining his PhD from Johns Hopkins University, Allen joined Johnson & Johnson Wound Management R&D and quickly set the standard of excellence, holding over 70 patents and 45 patent applications worldwide and several peer‐reviewed publications, and developing several new surgical products to help more patients. His most recent Class III medical device invention, SURGICEL Powder Absorbable Hemostat, has served numerous patients in more than 40 countries since its launch in late 2017 and led to Allen and his team being awarded the 2020 Johnson Medal and several prestigious international awards such as the Gold Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA) in the Drug‐Delivery Devices and Combination Products and the R&D 100 Award. Currently, he continues to work with J&J divisions globally to expand the Biosurgery product portfolio and generate novel surgical products for their future pipeline to address unmet surgical needs to enhance the health of people all over the world.
