Year of graduation: 2020

Supervisor: Dr Wai Kit CHU

I am very grateful to study my Ph.D. program in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (DOVS, CUHK). I get very scientific training in both Clinic study and basic cell biology research, which helped me quite a lot to be a better academic scientist. I appreciate everything I learnt from here. And I wish in future, I can achieve better and help more patients by all of my potential abilities.
