Short Biography:

I obtained my BSc and MPhil from the Department of Zoology, the University of Hong Kong. I worked on pre-implantation development of the mouse embryo during my MPhil study. Supported by the Croucher Scholarship, I worked under the supervision of Sir Martin Evans (Nobel Laureate 2007) at the Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, UK. The Croucher Foundation continued to support me with a Fellowship for nearly a year at the Wellcome/CRC Institute, Cambridge, UK. Then I returned to Hong Kong in 1992 and took up the lectureship at the Department of Paediatrics, HKU. Since then, I am running a research Lab on Molecular Developmental Biology, and promoted to Associate professor in 2007.  I worked on the function of EGF and RET in development and disease when I set up my laboratory. Currently I am continuing my work on gene knockout in mice and focusing on TSPYL1 and TSPYL2. These two genes are found in mammals only; and our work is gradually revealing the functions of these two genes in higher brain function.
