Shiang Lim's Profile Picture
Dr

Shiang Lim

 

After completing a PhD from University of Strathclyde (UK) in 2005, Dr Lim spent 4 years post-doc research at The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute (University College London, UK) focused on cardioprotection research, in particular the role of the mitochondria permeability transition pore and the translational value of ischemic conditioning. In June 2010, he joined the O’Brien Institute (Melbourne) and was appointed as the leader of the Cardiac Regeneration team in 2012.

His group focuses on combining stem cell technology and tissue engineering approach to repair and regenerate damaged heart
