Research Associate, Department of Cellular and Physiological Sciences, University of British Columbia
Wun Chey Sin is a research associate in the laboratory of Dr. Christian Naus at the Life Sciences Centre at the University of British Columbia. She received her PhD in Neuroscience from the University of London and did her postdoctoral training at the Institute of Molecular & Cell Biology in Singapore and at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York, where she contributed to the development of the single-cell electroporation in live tadpoles. She next spent a few years in a New York biotechnology company that specializes in cancer gene discovery before continuing her research at UBC. Wun Chey is the senior author in many gap junction studies and leads the research on the impact of host brain tissue on tumor progression. Currently, she is looking into the link between astrocyte-mediated inflammation and brain cancer.
