Dr. Tat Fong Ng is a Research Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology. Dr. Ng received his PhD in Anatomy from the University of Hong Kong. He is passionate about translational research that improves the concepts or the products that can help improve human health. He has a long track record of managing a state of the art laboratory with focus on both in vitro and in vivo research including histopathology, development of biomaterials and medical devices, biomarker and in vivo model development. He has a very collaborative and sharing nature, and always interested and flexible to learn new technologies and methods, and adapts fast to new environments and projects.

Immunology, ophthalmology, immunoassays, micro-surgeries, surgeries, dissections, retinal transplantation, transplantation into the kidney capsule, cells injection, immunohistochemistry, confocal imaging, fluorescent imaging, histomorphometry, histopathology, histology including paraffin sectioning, frozen sectioning, plastic sectioning, cell culture, PCR, western blot, electrophoresis.
