Thank you for the opportunity to chair a session and speak at the 2019 Gordon Research Conference on Translational Cancer Genomics that was held in Hong Kong from June 30 to July 5 2019.
Many personnel changes to the team in the past month!
1. We wish our Senior Technical Officer Phillis a happy retirement. Thank you for your positive attitude, dedication and hard work to the team in the past 6 years. You have been instrumental not only in setting up the lab when we first started in the Department of Anatomy in 2013, but also in the smooth running of all our research work. Let your new adventures begin!
