|Dr Ng Kee Woei was one of the first recipients of the A*STAR Graduate Scholarship. A mechanical engineer by training, he completed his PhD at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, in 2006. Dr Ng underwent postdoctoral training at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology and at the Institute of Medical Biology, A*STAR. He has worked on a number of projects to tissue engineer skin, bone and cartilage. He is also interested in pursuing fundamental understanding of cell-material interactions, including the toxicological influence of nanomaterials. Prior to joining NTU in 2008, Dr Ng was senior research fellow at the Institute of Medical Biology, A*STAR, working on epithelial stem cells, wound healing and keratin dynamics.|
