Dr CHONG Zhi Soon
Research Fellow

Dr Chong Zhi Soon joined SCELSE as a research fellow under the supervision of Asst Prof. Yang Liang. Prior to joining SCELSE, he completed his PhD in Chemistry from the National University of Singapore where his PhD focused on the understanding of outer membrane lipid asymmetry and phospholipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria. During his PhD, he discovered novel function of the general diffusion porins in lipid transport and maintenance of outer membrane lipid asymmetry. With his knowledge of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, his research aims to discover novel determinant of host-pathogen interaction, which might provide new insights to drug/vaccine development.
