140 for 140: Great Minds for Grand Challenges
Strategic Area: Structural, Synthetic & Computational Biology

HKUMed recently established the Centre for PanorOmic Sciences (CPOS), which is positioned to focus on precision medicine and to take a sweeping approach to health from pre-birth through the entire course of life. Substantial investments have been made in state-of-the-science equipment, including building new single-cell sequencing platforms; boosting our capabilities in proteomics and metabolomics; establishing a multi-disciplinary biobank; and expanding our bioinformatics consultancy and original research capabilities.

To enhance our capabilities in investigating this data, HKUMed is recruiting scholars who have expertise in structural, synthetic and computational biology. Successful candidates will engage in investigations and training related to the surge in multi-omics big data, such as genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics, microbiomics The outputs of this work will support the Faculty’s strategy of taking a panoramic approach to understanding health and disease mechanisms, and it will facilitate the development of preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic measures.
