Albert H.H. Cheung, Ph.D. Graduate
Prof. Albert H.H. Cheung received his Ph.D. degree from the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS), The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2010. During the study of his Ph.D., he participated in the “CUHK-NIH (National Institutes of Health) Graduate Partnership Program” which enabled him to gain valuable experience in working with different specialists and leading scientists at NIH. Prof. Cheung stayed in NIH as Post-doctoral Fellow for several years after his graduation.

In 2014, he returned to SBS and took up the appointment as a Research Assistant Professor. His research focuses on using patient-derived iPSC for disease modeling, and understanding speedy aging of some specialized stem cells which is crucial to identify the key regulator of aging. Prof. Cheung appreciates the opportunity working on stem cell research at the School where he can pursue further in academic achievement; and most important of all, it is his hope that his research findings can benefit patients who are in need.
