- Lena Ho, Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore
Lena obtained her PhD at Stanford, and postdoctoral training at the Institute of Medical Biology, A*STAR in Singapore. She established the Endogenous Peptides Lab in Duke-NUS Medical School in 2017, which utilizes a combinatorial platform to discover and functionalize novel sORF-encoded peptides (SEPs) in the human genome. Her goal is to uncover programmatic functions that SEPs might play, afforded by their special size, biochemical and genomic properties, as well as detailed molecular mechanisms employed by individual SEPs where they operate. Lena is an EMBO Young Investigator and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute International Research Scholar.
