Focus at NTx

Biological aspects of delivery systems design


I completed a bachelor’s degree in medical engineering at the University of Hong Kong; following which I worked at HKU – Pasteur Research Pole, an academic collaborative laboratory with Institute Pasteur, Paris. My research focused on delineating a few host factor protein roles during flavivirus infection.

I then moved to the UK to complete a master’s degree in Nanomedicine at Swansea University, during which time I developed a dynamic fluid flow lung model for nanotoxicology applications. I joined NanoVation Therapeutics™ in April 2023.
