Biography

Dr. Lai Kwok On received his Bachelor degree of Biochemistry from the University of Hong Kong. He then pursued postgraduate studies at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). With the award of the Croucher Foundation Fellowship in 2003, he performed postdoctoral research at UCLA in the United States.

He was Research Assistant Professor at HKUST before joining the Department of Physiology in 2014. Using a combination of molecular, biochemical and cellular approaches, Dr. Lai aims to elucidate the signal transduction mechanisms that underlie the development and functioning of neuronal synapses in the brain.

This would lead us to a better understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying long-term memory, and the pathophysiology of various neurodevelopmental disorders in the brain.
