The Ng lab aims to understand human diseases on a molecular basis and to develop tools to diagnose and treat them. Our therapeutic areas are cancers (especially lung cancers), diabetes, infectious and neurodegenerative diseases. 

Our lab uses medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and bioinformatics to understand the dysregulated molecular pathways in these diseases, and to create novel therapeutic small-molecules to target these dysregulated pathways. We also collaborate closely with physicians and entrepreneurs to translate our finding from bench to bedside.

The Ng Lab is currently recruiting Postdoctoral Fellows / PhD Students / Research Assistants / Visiting Scholars with background in organic synthesischemical biology / bioinformatics / cancer biology / pharmacogenomics. If you wish to join our research endeavour, please send your CV to: Our ongoing projects include (but not limited to) the following:


To develop new chemical biology tools for probing the posttranslational modifications (PTMs) of gene regulatory proteins.


To develop omics platforms for the discovery of new biomarkers in cancers, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases.


To create first-in-class small-molecule therapeutics targeting epigenetics- and metabolism-associated pathways.
