Boon Seng Soh
Principal InvestigatorInstitute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB)
Boon Seng Soh obtained a Bachelor of Science with honours degree from the National University of Singapore. As an A*STAR Graduate Scholarship recipient, his PhD studies focused on the optimisation of stem cell cultures and differentiation towards pulmonary stem cells under the co-supervision of Athanasios Mantalaris at Imperial College London and Bing Lim at the A*STAR Genome Institute of Singapore. In 2011, Soh joined the laboratory of Kenneth Chien at Harvard University to work on the biology of multipotent cardiac stem cells, in both murine- and human-based model systems. His research focus is clinically driven, with an emphasis on understanding the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms in diseases towards developing targeted therapies. His current research interests focus on modelling human cardiac diseases using both 2D and 3D culture systems.
