Andrew Ying Hui Ng

Introduction

I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biotechnology and a minor in Pharmacology and Toxicology from the University at Buffalo (UB) in 2013. While pursuing my undergraduate degree, I participated in an internship with Kinex Pharmaceuticals, where I worked to elucidate the mechanism of a novel class of immunosuppressants. I acquired additional research experience in an academic lab in the UB Department of Biotechnical and Clinical Laboratory Sciences (BCLS), where I studied Exportin-7, a protein critical for nuclear extrusion during mammalian erythrocyte differentiation. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. degree from the UB Deparment of Oral Biology and under the co-mentorship of Dr. Shuying Yang and Dr. Jun Qu. My research is focused on using LC/MS and proteomics as a tool to discern the molecular mechanism behind skeletal aging and the role of primary cilia in osteoarthritis.
