Biography

Maria Lung attended Cornell University in New York for her bachelor’s degree and obtained her PhD from Stanford University in California. After being a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Massachusetts, she joined the Department of Microbiology at the University of Hong Kong. She subsequently moved to the Department of Biology at the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology and became one of its founding members. In 2009, she moved back to the University of Hong Kong and became Chair Professor in the Department of Clinical Oncology.
