About me

myself I am SUN, Kun (孙坤), currently a Research Assistant Professor (faulty) in Department of Chemical Pathology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). I am also a staff of Centre for Research into Circulating Fetal Nucleic Acids, Li Ka Shing Institute of Health Sciences and Prince of Wales Hospital.

I received my B.Sci. degree in Department of Electronic Engeneering from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in July 2010. Then I came to CUHK and obtained my Ph.D. degree in July 2014 specializing in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics under the supervision of Prof. Hao Sun (孙昊) and Prof. Huating Wang (王华婷). Later on, I received my post-doc training under the supervision of Prof. Y.M. Dennis Lo (卢煜明) and Prof. Rossa W.K. Chiu (赵慧君). My research fields are computational biology and translational medicine. I mainly work on biological/biomedical projects (especially noninvasive prenatal testing and cancer liquid biopsy through plasma DNA analysis) based on the massive parallel sequencing technology.

I am interested in the following research fields:

  • Computational Biology/Bioinformatics
  • Genomics and Transcriptomics
  • Data mining and visualization
  • Noninvasive prenatal/cancer testing using plasma DNA
  • Long noncoding RNA identification and functional investigation
