Wesley Zhao

Wesley, hailing from a family with roots in Shanghai, spent his formative years in the Seattle area before settling in Leavenworth, Washington. Within the field of precision psychiatry, Wesley’s primary research focus revolves around developing more effective and accessible treatments for treatment-resistant depression and trauma. He specifically directs his attention toward Asian-American and other immigrant populations, harboring a keen interest in emerging rapid-acting therapies, including psychedelics. To find joy in life, Wesley engages in various activities. He relishes being physically active, indulging in delicious foods, playing the piano, collaborating closely with others, and bringing happiness to his three-year-old niece. When he finds himself alone, Wesley takes pleasure in reading, writing, and playing the piano. He also derives great satisfaction from working out and sharing meals with friends.
