Dr. Timothy Soong-Hua Wang is an associate professor of dermatology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His areas of clinical expertise include dermatology, melanoma, Mohs surgery and skin cancer.
Dr. Wang serves as the director of the Mohs Surgery Program, the director of the Cutaneous Skin Oncology Program, and the medical director of dermatologic surgery in the Department of Dermatology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
He received his undergraduate degree in microbiology from the University of Michigan and a post-baccalaureate degree in zoology from Michigan State University. He earned his medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine. He completed his residency in dermatology at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and performed a fellowship in dermatology and Mohs surgery at the University of Michigan Health System.
Dr. Wang is currently collaborating with other dermatologists and oncologists on a pilot study to evaluate the feasibility of using adhesive skin sampling as a non-invasive screening technique for melanoma and other forms of skin cancer.
In 2012, Dr. Wang was awarded a Hometown Heroes award from the Chesapeake Gateway Chamber of Commerce for going to a patient’s house to perform surgery when the patient was too sick to travel to the hospital.

Research & Publications
Dr. Wang is currently collaborating with other dermatologists and oncologists on a pilot study to evaluate the feasibility of using adhesive skin sampling as a non-invasive screening technique for melanoma and other forms of skin cancer. If successful, the pilot study could translate into a non-invasive alternative to the traditional biopsy and potentially identify skin cancer at a much earlier stage leading to better outcomes for patients.
