Dr. Angel Ma received her PhD from the Department of Pathology, the University of Hong Kong in 2020 before joining the School of Public Health as a Post-doctoral Fellow. Her earlier research revolved around the role of dysregulated fatty acid metabolism in exacerbating hepatocellular carcinoma. She is currently interested in the therapeutic potential of mesenchymal stromal cells and their derivatives in promoting tissue regeneration, and elucidating prospective therapeutic targets from the secretome profiles arising from emerging respiratory viral infections.
