Principal Investigator

Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology

Shi Yan Ng completed her Bachelor in Science with First Class Honours at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and her Ph.D with Lawrence Stanton at the Genome Institute of Singapore, under the NUS Graduate School (NGSS) scholarship. With a keen interest in stem cells and modeling neurological disease, Ng joined Professor Lee Rubin’s laboratory at Harvard University to study Spinal Muscular Atrophy, an inherited motor neuron disease affecting children. Thereafter, Ng began her independent research career at IMCB in 2015, where she continued to study mechanisms of neurological diseases using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells. Shi Yan has won several fellowships and awards for her work, including the National Research Foundation (NRF) Fellowship (Class of 2018), the A*STAR International Fellowship (2012), and the Merck Millipore Young Scientist Award (2011). She is currently a Principal Investigator at IMCB, and an Assistant Professor at the Department of Physiology, NUS Medicine.
