Chew-Li Soh, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Pictured: Chew-Li Soh

Chew-Li Soh received her Bachelor of Biomedical Science from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia in 2005. She was awarded First Class Honours in 2006 under the supervision of Timothy Cox, PhD, through a collaborative project between Monash University and University of Washington in Seattle, where she examined the effects of gene dysregulation during craniofacial development.

Chew-Li completed her PhD in 2013 at Monash Immunology and Stem Cell Laboratories, in the laboratories of Professor Ed Stanley and Professor Richard Boyd, where her research investigated the ability of using human embryonic stem cells to regenerate cells of the thymus, a primary lymphoid organ with a paramount role to develop and educate T-cells for immunological tolerance. As a postdoctoral researcher in the Huangfu Lab, she will explore how the silencing or overexpression of genes using targeted nucleases for genome engineering affects the differentiation of pluripotent stem cells into tissue lineages of clinical importance.
