Dr. Wong obtained her PhD at the University of Cambridge. Prior to her PhD study, she received her undergraduate training in The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, and later completed her MPhil study in The University of Hong Kong. While conducting her research on microRNAs, hematopoiesis and lymphocyte development and function in Cambridge, and later in GlaxoSmithKline in Stevenage, Dr. Wong developed a strong interest in education in immunology and physiology. She is experienced in teaching biochemistry, physiology, medical ethics and humanities in local universities, and previously received an Outstanding Teaching Award (“Good Teacher Award”) in 2012. She was a Lecturer and Honorary Assistant Professor in The University of Kong Kong. Since Dr. Wong joined the School of Biomedical Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine in The Chinese University of Hong Kong, she is dedicated to the teaching profession and has devoted time to teaching a wide range of courses in University General Education, Faculty Package, Anatomy and Human Dissection, Physiology and Pathophysiology, Molecular Genetics and Medicine, Bioethics and Humanities in various programs including Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB), Bachelor of Chinese Medicine, BSc. in Biomedical Sciences and BSc. in Biomedical Engineering.


Her research interests currently lie in anatomy, physiology and bioethics education, epigenetic remodeling, modulation of histone methylation in treatment of hematological disorders, and development of engaged pedagogical approaches for teaching and learning of anatomy, physiology and bioethics.
