- Fellowship in 2018 at the University of California, Berkeley
May obtained her BSc(Chemistry) at the University of Hong Kong with first class honour in 2012. With strong interest in the bioinorganic chemistry and anti-cancer metal medicines, she worked under the supervision of Prof. Che Chi-Ming in the University of Hong Kong, focusing on detection and treatment of cancer by using novel platinum (II) and gold (III) complexes. She received her PhD in 2017 and worked as an engineer in Nano and Advanced Materials Institute Limited.
May’s current research related to drug target(s) identification by chemoproteomic strategies. This mass-spectrometry-based proteomic approach enable mapping druggable hotspots directly in complex proteomes, thus providing valuable information for drug discovery.
