Dr. Shree Ram Singh is a Staff Scientist at National Cancer Institute. His current research is directed toward understanding the molecular genetic mechanism by which stem cells regulate tissue homeostasis, regeneration, and tumorigenesis. He is utilizing Drosophila and mouse model system to understand the above mechanisms. Further, he is focusing on lipid metabolism (lipolysis) on stem cell fate.
Pawel L. Urban received his MSc degree in biology from the University of Warsaw in 2002, and PhD degree in chemistry from the University of York in 2008. He conducted research stays in the University of Alcala, University of Warsaw, and ETH Zurich. The Urban’s laboratory was initially located in the National Chiao Tung University; then moved to the National Tsing Hua University. The team focuses on the development of enabling technologies for chemistry research and clinical analysis, their applications, as well as fundamental studies.

Dr. Guang Wong is an associate professor of physiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His research focuses on mechanisms governing metabolic homeostasis, function of adipose-and skeletal muscle-derived hormones, and mechanisms of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
He received in B.S. from Washington State University and his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2000. Dr. Wong completed post-doctoral work in biochemistry, cell biology, and physiology at M.I.T’s Whitehead Institute from 2001 - 2007. He joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2008.
Dr. Wong’s lab seeks to understand mechanisms employed by cells and tissues to maintain metabolic homeostasis and is currently addressing how adipose- and skeletal muscle-derived hormones (adipokines and myokines), discovered in his lab, regulate tissue crosstalk and signaling pathways to control energy metabolism.
Dr. Yang’s research focuses on a group of gasotransmitters, especially H2S, in the regulation of cellular functions and human diseases. Dr. Yang has received numerous awards and recognitions, including New Investigator award from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and Maureen Andrew Award from Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. In his career, Dr. Yang has published ~100 peer-reviewed research articles, some of them published in high-impact journals, including as Science, Circulation, PNAS, and EMBO report etc. Their total citations are 7,481 (September 24, 2018).
