Raymond Wong

 

Dr Wong is a Principal Investigator at the Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA)/ the University of Melbourne. He is a stem cell biologist specialising in cell reprogramming, human pluripotent stem cells and neural/retinal biology.

Dr Wong completed his PhD in stem cell biology (Monash University) and was awarded a CIRM fellowship to pursue overseas postdoctoral training in stem cell biology at University of California Irvine, and subsequently a Visiting Fellow Award to train in cell reprogramming at the National Institutes of Health. Subsequently, he was recruited to join Elixirgen LLC (USA) to develop novel cell reprogramming technologies. In 2013, Dr Wong joined CERA with the support of a Cranborne Foundation Fellowship and was awarded an Research Excellence Award (2015) for his work on iPSC disease modeling. In 2016, Dr Wong established the Cellular Reprogramming Unit with the support of a MAWA fellowship. He currently holds a guest professor position in Shenzhen Eye Hospital (China) and serves as the Chief Consultant for iPS cell research for the Department of Cornea.

Dr Wong's laboratory is dedicated to better understand and develop treatment for eye diseases using cell reprogramming and stem cell technologies. His current research incorporates advanced techniques such as human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, cellular reprogramming, CRISPR/Cas technologies and single cell transcriptomics, with the goal to better understand and control cell fate decisions in the eye. Dr Wong's research aims to develop new ways to generate retina cells in the lab which can be used to study the mechanism underlying retinal diseases, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
