Gary Tse (谢家伟) is a clinician-scientist with training in physiology, medicine, cardiac electrophysiology, public health and healthcare management. He started his medical and scientific training at the University of Cambridge in 2005. In 2007, he was awarded the Gregon and Benn Award (Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge) for research exchange to Yale University's Department of Biomedical Engineering. In 2008, Tse was selected for the Frankl Award (Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge), The Wellcome Trust and The Physiological Society Scholarships for cardiovascular research at Cambridge, and a Master's scholarship for MPhil study in Computational Biology from the Cambridge-MIT Institute, which he declined to take up a BBSRC CASE Collaborative Doctoral Training Award, as 1 of the 3 recipients across three Departments selected from an open recruitment exercise. Later, he conducted research in cardiovascular MRI at the Royal Brompton Hospital whilst undertaking clinical training at Imperial College London. He received his PhD in Systems Biology from the University of Cambridge in July 2015, MPH (Master of Public Health) from the University of Manchester in 2017 and MHM (Master of Health Management) from the University of New South Wales in 2018.

In August 2015, Tse was appointed Assistant Professor in Biomedical Sciences, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong. In 2016, he was awarded a Clinical Research Fellowship by The Croucher Foundation and subsequently joined the Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong as Assistant Professor on their clinician-scientist track. Tse is a Principal Investigator in the Faculty's Li Ka Shing Institute of Health Sciences.

Tse has attracted HK$9.1 million funding as a principal applicant and co-applicant. He has supervised over 50 medical and science students for medical research.
