Welcome to Phing Chian Chai



Phing_ChianPhing Chian obtained his BSc from the National University of Singapore, where he studied the role of free radicals and proteasomal functions in biological systems under the supervision of Barry Halliwell. He then joined William Chia’s lab in Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory (Singapore) for his PhD. During his PhD, he was co-supervised by Yu Cai to study the actions of Hedgehog and Notch pathways in the development of the Drosophila central nervous system. He will join our group in April 2014 (Group Benton) to pursue his research interest in the evolution of neural circuits for olfactory perception from a developmental perspective.
