Dr. Ng received the B.Sc. (Hons) and M.Phil. degrees in Biochemistry from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2000 and 2002, respectively. He was awarded a scholarship offered by the Cambridge Overseas Trust in 2002 and pursued a Ph.D. degree in the University of Cambridge, working with Prof. John Gurdon in the Wellcome Trust Gurdon Institute on the epigenetic regulation in cloned animal. After completing his Ph.D. study, Dr. Ng was awarded The Croucher Foundation Fellowship, and continued his post-doctoral research training in embryonic stem cell epigenetics at the Babraham Institute, Cambridge. Dr. Ng joined The University of Hong Kong as Research Assistant Professor in 2008 and was promoted to Assistant Professor in 2011. His research interests are in the differentiation of stem cells into haematopoietic and placental cell lineages, which opens up new strategies to generate essential cell types for clinical applications.
