Ecstatic to have the opportunity to participate at the Keystone eSymposia on Cancer Stem Cells: Advances in Biology and Clinical Translation held May 19-21, 2021. Shared my group’s recent research progress on how the non-cellular components of the tumor microenvironment shapes cancer stemness in the liver; and learnt about the exciting new projects from others! Postdoc Lena and PhD student Huajian in the lab also shared their recent research findings in a short talk and poster abstract. Link to full program can be found here.
Our Research Assistant Professor Man Tong (Carol) gave a summary of her past and current work on novel therapeutic strategies to target dysregulated signaling pathways in HCC at the School of Biomedical Sciences RAP/PDF Seminar Series on January 27, 2021.
Our postdoc Tin Lok Wong (Eric) gave a seminar on his latest work on modeling liver cancer and therapy response using driver-dependent tumor organoids derived from primary mouse liver tumors at the School of Biomedical Sciences RAP/PDF Seminar Series on January 6, 2021.
Congratulations to our RPG students for their fantastic presentations and awards at the 25th RPG Symposium! Very well done. Keep up the good work 👍 Best Oral Presentation Awards: Jane LOONG Ho Chun (PhD student) Matthew WONG Tsz Lam (PhD student) Best Poster Presentation Award: Jia Jian LOH (PhD student)
Congrats to Jane on winning one of the three Best Presentation Awards at the State Key Laboratory of Liver Research (SKLLR) Internal Research Meeting held on November 28th 2020 at HKU. A morning well spent, learning about 13 interesting HCC related projects presented by PhDs and PDFs! Well done Jane 👍
July 18 2020 – This year’s State Key Laboratory of Liver Research (SKLLR) Annual Symposium was postponed again and again due to COVID-19. But despite all obstacles, the event was successfully held online through ZOOM on July 18th 2020. Our Postdoctoral Fellow Dr. Tin-Lok Wong gave a presentation on his latest work “CRAF methylation by PRMT6 regulates aerobic glycolysis driven hepatocarcinogenesis via ERK-dependent PKM2 nuclear relocalization and activation” which was just published in the April 2020 issue of Hepatology.
Dec 9 to 12 2019 @ Awaji, Japan – Shared, learned, met new and caught up with old friends at the Cold Spring Harbor Asia 2019 Conference on Liver, Biology, Diseases and Cancer held in Awaji, Japan this year.
Jane sharing her latest research findings at the poster session.
Oct 28-31 2019 @ Shanghai, China – Blessed to have the opportunity to participate in the World Laureates Association 2nd Annual Forum this year. Such an eye opening experience to be in the same room with 44 Nobel Laureates at the same time.
