Dr Si Hui Tan

Before she became Associate Director of Biology at Cargene Therapeutics, Si Hui spent more than half her life dabbling in research spanning botany, pharmacy, biochemistry and more. She settled on cancer biology during her PhD studies at Stanford, where she also discovered her interest in stem cells and Wnt signaling in Roel Nusse’s lab. Thereafter, she received the Young Scientist Award for her postdoc research on cancer and stem cells in Nick Barker’s group at Institute of Medical Biology, A*STAR. At Cargene, Si Hui oversees R&D to deliver oligonucleotide therapeutics for refractory diseases. Having benefited tremendously from her mentors, she strives to pay it forward by helping younger scientists.
