Dr Lian, Qizhou 連祺周
Dr Lian received his doctoral degree of Medicine (M.D., Ph.D.) from Harbin Medical University in 1999, China. He was an interventional Cardiologist in the First Hospital of Peking Medical University and Quanzhou First Hospital of Fujian Medical University from 1999 to 2001. In order to save more patients, in 2001 he decided to leave routine clinical practice and accepted NMRC Fellowship in National University of Singapore, to study stem cell and developmental biology in regenerative medicine. In 2006 he was a visiting Research Scientist in experimental cardiology at Utrecht Medical Centre, Netherlands, and in 2007 a Research Scientist at National University Medical Institute, Singapore. He joined the University of Hong Kong as Research Assistant Professor in 2008 and Assistant Professor in 2010. His research interests are in the differentiation of human stem cells into therapeutically useful cell types, which open up new strategies to rescue many incurable disorders in near future.
