Professor Huck-Hui NG is the Executive Director of the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS).
Huck-Hui NG graduated from the National University of Singapore and obtained his PhD from the University of Edinburgh. He spent the next few years working at the Harvard Medical School as a Damon Runyon-Walter Winchell research fellow.
His lab is studying gene regulation in stem cells. Specifically, his group is using genome wide approaches to dissect the transcriptional regulatory networks in embryonic stem cells and to identify key nodes in this network. More recently, his lab has begun to investigate the reprogramming code behind the induction of pluripotency in somatic cells. His research work has earned him several prestigious national accolades including the Singapore Youth Award 2005, the National Science Award 2007 and the President Science Award 2011.
