- Scholarship in 2022 at Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Germany
Long Hin TSANG, also known as David, is currently a PhD student at the International Max Planck Research Schools for Cells, Developmental and Systems Biology, Dresden. His scientific interest is in the cell fate transition involved in adult regeneration.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry from The University of Hong Kong and a Master of Science in Human Biology from Ludwig Maximilian Universität München. In his undergraduate study, he interned at Dr. WONG Chun-Ming, Jack's lab to study liver cancer and thereafter wrote his bachelor degree dissertation with Prof. SHAM Mai-Har on notch signalling in mouse's early epibranchial development.
During his stay in Munich, he rotated in several labs and gained experience in genomic study, stem cell biology and spatial transcriptomics. For his master thesis, he moved to Dresden to work with Dr. Meritxell HUCH in studying the heterogeneity of liver ductal cells.
He will continue his research at the Huch lab, focusing on liver regeneration by combining in vitro organoid model, in vivo mouse damage model and in silico multi-omics sequencing in his PhD project.
