Wong Kam Bo 黃錦波

  • Scholarship in 1993 at University of Cambridge

With the support of the Croucher Foundation Scholarship, Professor Wong studied his Ph. D. at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Prof. Alan Fersht, a leading scientist in protein engineering and protein folding.

Many Croucher Scholars worked in Alan's lab, and they wrote an article in "Protein Engineering, Design & Selection" about life as a Croucher Scholar in Cambridge (https://doi.org/10.1093/protein/gzq075).


He is a professor at the School of Life Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. His research group focuses on using a structural biology approach to understand the molecular mechanism of life. His work made significant contribution towards our understanding of how cells solve the problem of trafficking a toxic metal ion such as nickel to the active of essential enzymes and how proteins are sorted to the vacuoles in plant cells.
