Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Oi Ying Hung

Christy obtained her B.Sc. degree in Biochemistry (1st Class Hons.) from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2013. The goals of her research are to characterize the trafficking of different neuronal proteins and identify the motor proteins required in the transportation process. She received both the “Cambridge International Scholarship” and “Croucher Cambridge International Scholarship ” for her Ph.D. studies.
