- Fellowship in 2018 at University of California, Berkeley
Dr May Fung 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 Professor 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 2016 and worked as an engineer in Nano and Advanced Materials Institute Limited.
After a year working with the Nano and Advanced Materials Institute in Hong Kong, she joined the University of California, Berkeley, in 2018, as a Croucher Postdoctoral Fellow.
Her research focused on 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.
She then joined Hong Kong Jockey Club as Chemist in 2020.
Dr May Sin Ki Fung is a chemist at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, working on doping control in the racing industry.
