Wee Siong “Sho” Goh (PI)

Sho is a principal investigator at the Institute of Molecular Physiology in Shenzhen Bay Laboratory (China). He obtained his Bachelor’s in Bioengineering from University of Pennsylvania (USA) and his PhD in Biology from the Gregory Hannon lab at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (USA). He was a postdoctoral fellowship in the William Burkholder/Stephen Quake lab at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (Singapore) before starting his own lab as a junior principal investigator at the Genome Institute of Singapore (Singapore).
Research interests: 
Epitranscriptomics and thinking about the next RNA-based dogma
What’s your next vacation destination? 
Singapore, simply for friends, family and food.

“Ann” Huihui An (Research assistant)

Ann uses biochemical approaches to study how cellular stress regulates the epitranscriptomic landscape. She obtained her Master’s in Medicinal Chemistry from Nankai University (China).
Research interests: 
Stress-regulation of the epitranscriptome
What’s your next vacation destination?: 
Switzerland. I want to experience a different life.

“Jenny” Lin Zhang (Joint PhD student with Chan Lab @HKU)

Jenny uses chemical approaches to study how RNA modifications impact metabolic diseases in liver. She obtained her Bachelor’s and Master’s in Science from Shenzhen University (China).
Research interests: 
Epitranscriptomic regulation of metabolic diseases
What’s your next vacation destination? 
Japan. I hope to learn the history, folk custom and culture of this country.

Mohua Das (Joint postdoctoral fellow with DasGupta lab @GIS)

Mohua uses epitranscriptomic sequencing to study how unique RNA methylation patterns contribute to cancer phenotypes. She obtained her Bachelor in Pharmacy from West Bengal University of Technology (India) and PhD in Medicinal Chemistry from the National University of Singapore (Singapore).
Research interests:
