Biography

Professor Daisy K.Y. Shum obtained her M.Phil. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry in The University of Hong Kong. She received  predoctoral training in biochemistry/physiology of glycosaminoglycans in the University of Manchester and postdoctoral training in brain proteoglycans in New York University. She is now Professor of Biochemistry in the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong. She served as Secretary of the Hong Kong Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and is currently the Secretary of the Hong Kong Society of Neurosciences. She also served as committee member of international congress/symposia and reviewer of grants for several national research councils. Her research expertise in the proteoglycans has found relevance in cell migration, axonal guidance and plasticity of sensory function in both developing and injured neural tissues.  With the achievement of fate commitment in glial cells derived from adult bone marrow stromal cells, new excitement is generated in the use of these cells in glycan-based nerve conduits for the bridging of severed nerves towards post-traumatic regeneration of peripheral and central nervous systems.
