Research groups in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology investigate the mechanisms of biological processes across a range of organisms, from viruses and microbes to plants, worms, fish and mammals.


  • Prof. Chris KC Wong’s works on the impact of environmental pollutant, bisphenol A, a residual component of plastics, on human fertility has won great publicity.


  • Prof. Zhao Zhongying’s group has established a state-of-the-art platform for automated screening of developmental defects with single-cell resolution after exposure to environmental challenges and has been outstanding in competing for RGC funding and generating significant publications.


  • Dr.  Allen Cheung’s group is focused on understanding immune mechanisms underlying cancers, neurodegenerative diseases and persistent viral infections that are affected by the environmental and dietary factors.


  • Dr. Bi Yang’s group focuses on studying nutrient signaling using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana through a combination of proteomics, transcriptomics, genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology approaches
