Happy Farewells

Our best wishes to Carol, Yunong, and Justin!

I cannot be more proud of Carol and am thrilled to see her start her own independent lab in the School of Biomedical Sciences at CUHK this summer. Carol was my first PhD student and I have witnessed her growth and achievements, both academically and personally, over the years. I have no doubt she will continue to fly high and look forward to seeing her further accomplishments in the future.

Yunong is finishing off his MPhil study under the supervision of Carol, and will be beginning his PhD program with Carol in her new lab at CUHK.

Justin is finishing off his MBBS Enrichment Year and MRes[Med] study with us. Justin – Best of luck as you begin clinical rotations in medical school. I hope to see you continue doing research as a medical doctor in the future!

Thank you all for your contribution to the SMA lab. It has been a pleasure working with you!
