Roger Foo received his MD from the National University of Singapore and underwent higher specialist training at the University of Cambridge, where he focused on gene expression control and epigenetics, using NGS systems to analyze patient heart muscle samples. When he returned home to Singapore, Foo advocated for the use of NGS in clinics and also helped establish the Singapore Undiagnosed Research Program for Kids. He is also a Principal Investigator at A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore, where his research interests revolve around the cardiac epigenome, molecular epigenetics and the stress-gene response.
