Scientific Activity

1)Protein Expression Core Facility including Bacteria, Baculovirus/Insect, and Mammalian expression system; 2) Immunological & Molecular Diagnostics Development that are applicable and transferable to biopharmaceutical sectors either on CMC campus or off campus.


Teaching activity

At ICGEB co-Mentoring a graduate student from China Pharmaceutical University (Nanjing) and undergraduate students. At NIE in Singapore, mentoring graduate students and an undergraduate student who afterwards was enrolled in Doctor program in NTU, Department of Biology. Also lectured graduate students and postdoctoral researcher on experimental design and lab techniques. At Nanjing Tech University, Continuing Education School, I lectured English course for students pursuing university degree.
