Eunice Chan

  • Scholarship in 2002 at Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry

Eunice obtained her B.Sc. degree in Biochemistry at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and M.Phil. degree in Biochemistry at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Afterwards, she was funded by the HK Croucher Foundation to pursue a Ph.D. study at the Max-Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany. Her thesis was mainly about the regulations and functions of human kinases in cell division. In 2007, She moved to London and was a postdoc researcher at London Research Institute, Cancer Research UK. She was using fruit fly as a model system to study the mechanisms required for maintaining epithelial layer integrity during development. Currently, she is at the Developmental Biology Institute of Marseille - Luminy and is learning advanced imaging and biophysical techniques to investigate the dynamics and natures of protein molecules essential for epithelial cell-cell adhesion.    .
