Gong, Lang

Post-doctoral Fellow

Public Health Laboratory Sciences

  • BA, PhD
Dr Gong received his BA (Preventive veterinary medicine) and PhD (Biology) in South China Agricultural University and Sun Yat-sen University respectively.  His main research interests focus on pathogenicity and epidemiology of swine diseases, such as porcine epidemic diarrhea, african swine fever and swine influenza.  He received two science and technology project grants from Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province.  Now he joined the University of Hong Kong for his postdoctoral training with Professor Guan Yi to explore molecular epidemiological investigation of ASFV and porcine coronavirus.
