HUIMEI CHEN

Senior Research Fellow

I work on the regulation of WWP2 in fibrosis in important organs like the heart and the kidney, and on anti-fibrotic drug discovery.

VLADIMIR ESPINOSA

Senior Research Fellow

The focus of my research is Brugada Syndrome and Sudden Death. I use integrative bioinformatics analyses of clinical and multi-omics data for the identification of genetic determinants, pathways and biomarker signatures underlying Brugada Syndrome and related cardiovascular disorders.

JING GUO

Research Fellow

I work on Whole-Genome Sequencing  (WGS) analysis in diabetic nephropathy and single-cell transcriptomics in kidney disease. I am part of The Diabetes Study in Nephropathy and other Microvascular Complications (DYNAMO) project, aimed at improving understanding of diabetic kidney disease and reducing its prevalence in Singapore by 30% over five years.

SWARNA ADUSUMALLI

Research Fellow

I am a computational biologist, experienced in high-throughput -omics data analysis and integration. I am working closely with Prof Karl Tryggvason’s lab, to study the differentiation process of cardiomyocytes and photoreceptors using single-cell transcriptomics in laminin cultured cells.

NITHYA VENKATESWARAN

Senior Research Assistant

I’m working on the characterization of a novel E3 ubiquitin ligase, WWP2, identified by our  group at the level of different tissues an using various in vitro and in vivo fibrosis models.

JUI ZHI LOH

Senior Research Assistant

I aim to understand the fibrogenic pathways regulated by WWP2. Hopefully this could lead to the development of better antifibrotic treatments.

YI XIE

PhD Student

I am using Machine Learning (ML) to extract biological processes underlying single-cell RNA sequencing data and build models to predict individual patients' outcome.

SHIYANG LIU

Research Fellow

I’m studying long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) regulated by Wnt signaling in cancer, using computational and CRISPRi screen approach.

YU YUAN HUANG

PhD student

I am an incoming PhD student with prior experience characterizing the epi-mutation rate of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and developing bioinformatics pipelines. I am interested in integrative single-cell sequencing analysis, with a focus on WWP2 and its role in lung fibrosis.
