Center/Research Area Affiliation
Dr. Ng's research is focused on drug discovery and development, as well as disease mechanisms at a preclinical level. His expertise lies in cell and molecular biology, molecular genetics, and animal model and assay development. Dr. Ng has significant experience applying basic experimental techniques and analyses to drive translational research. His current research projects include investigating the neuroprotective function of endogenous VEGF-A in ischemia- and inflammation-driven retinopathies and glaucoma; identifying novel targets for anti-angiogenesis and anti-inflammation in neovascular AMD, diabetic retinopathy, and retinopathy of prematurity; and characterizing a novel anti-inflammatory strategy for peripheral vascular disease.
