Fong Kuan Wong


I completed my undergraduate and Masters degrees in Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacology, respectively, at the National University of Singapore. My academic trajectory took a slight detour as I worked as a Research Associate in GlaxoSmithKline (Singapore) for a few years. Upon my return to the world of academia, I moved across the globe to Dresden, Germany, for my PhD and studied the cell biological behaviour of neural stem and progenitor cells in the lab of Wieland B. Huttner at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG). For my postdoctoral research, I joined the Marín lab in 2015. Here, in addition to learning more about the complex world of interneurons, I am interested in understanding the role of programmed cell death in sculpting cortical circuits during development. Outside of the lab, I like to read and doodle and am currently in the midst of trying to convince Oscar to hire me as the resident lab cartoonist.
