  Characterization of new biomarkers for precision management of metabolic diseases
  Prof A Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bariatric surgery is one of the most efficient ways in reducing the incidence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and related mortality in obese individuals compared with the conventional intensive medical treatment.
  Development of new anti-obese strategies by conversion of white fat to brown fat
  Prof A Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In contrast to white adipose tissue (WAT) that stores energy, brown adipose tissue (BAT) is specialized for energy dissipation and considered as a potential weapon to combat obesity by uncoupling mitochondrial respiratory chain and ATP synthesis.
  Diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in lung cancer
  Dr D CL Lam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of my research laboratory is to develop and implement new ways to improve the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer through multi-disciplinary research that translates results between the laboratory and the clinic.

Adipose tissue (fat) is a highly heterogeneous and dynamic organ that plays integral roles in metabolic and cardiovascular health.
  Characterizing synthetic lethal targets for genome-informed precision cancer medicine
  Dr L Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is a leading cause of cancer death in women. Identification of novel, actionable and effective strategies to treat the disease could significantly contribute to the improvement of patient survival.
  Exploiting stemness as a cancer cell vulnerability using hepatocellular carcinoma as a model system
  Dr S Ma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumors are composed of non-homogeneous cell populations exhibiting varying degrees of genetic and functional heterogeneity. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are capable of sustaining tumors by manipulating genetic and non-genetic factors to metastasize, resist treatment, and maintain the tumor microenvironment.
  Investigating mutational processes in cancer genomes
  Dr J Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations in DNA are known to directly contribute to the development of cancers.
  Isthmin-1 in mammary gland branching morphogenesis and breast cancer tumorigenesis
  Prof Z Zhou
Applications accepted all year round
