Professor Wong qualified as a pharmacist in 1992 and received his PhD from The University of Manchester in 1998 for his work at the David Lewis Centre for Epilepsy.

He was also responsible for setting up the new Master of Clinical Pharmacy programme and the Centre for Safe Medication Practice and Research. The Centre for Safe Medication Practice and Research has focused on the methodological development and application of health big data research in Hong Kong. In 2015, in addition to his work at HKU, Professor Wong took up his dual role at UCL to develop a joint research programme in pharmacoepidemiology and medication safety.

Professor Wong has also advised the Departments of Health in England and Hong Kong, the World Health Organization, the European Medicines Agency, and the pharmaceutical industry.
