Biography

Dr. Wendy Keung obtained her Bachelor's degree in Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of British Columbia, Canada.  She subsequently received an MPhil and a Ph.D degree in Pharmacology at the University of Hong Kong.  Upon obtaining her Ph.D, she went on to pursue postdoctoral training at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute in Canada where she studied energy metabolism of the heart during postnatal development as well as in disease states including diabetes and heart failure.  During her postdoctoral training she was awarded a number of research fellowships including the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada/Astra Zeneca Research fellowship.  Since 2012, she has returned to HKU and joined the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Consortium and took up the position of Research Assistant Professor in 2014.

Dr. Keung's current research interests include understanding energy metabolism in human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes.  Another major focus of her research is driving maturation of stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes through metabolic treatment in both 2D and higher 3D engineered cardiac tissue constructs.
