Human are complex organisms that made up of million individual systems. Professor Kim Chow of School of Life Sciences is one of the dedicating scientists working on dissecting the mechanisms regulating human physiology. Instead of following conventional approaches, she decodes the signalling pathways in neurodegenerative diseases by combining big data analysis to small things like molecular biology.
With the interdisciplinary approach, she is able to analyse massive amount of molecular data within a short period of time, and the efficient research method and data-driven results facilitate her to determine the most feasible regulatory mechanism. Her endeavours and perseverance are not wasted; recently, she has been awarded the Excellent Young Scientists Fund 2020 from the National Natural Science Foundation of China. In the brand-new interview series “Our Eminent Scientists @ CUHK”, she will share with us how she paved the way for neuroscience research.
