NeuroBiology & Genetics Group

Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences, Universiti Putra Malaysia

NBGG CO-LEADERS
Dr. Pike See Cheah
NeuroBiology & Genetics Group or better known as NBGG is co-led by Dr Pike-See Cheah from the Department of Human Anatomy and Dr Michael KH Ling from the Medical Genetics Unit of Department of Biomedical Science, Universiti Putra Malaysia.

Dr. Michael KH Ling (Co-Leader)
The group is interested in deciphering the genetic components that regulate the molecular networks underlying the development of the mammalian brain.
RESEARCH FOCUS
The group is currently focused on the following research activities:
  • Characterisation of novel microRNAs involved in embryogenesis.
  • Transcriptomic and functional analyses of the brain and the muscle of a mouse model for Down syndrome.
  • Molecular screening of nucleic acid aberrations in selected neurological disorders.

TRAINING & SERVICES PROVIDED
NBGG is currently halting all the following training/workshop-on-demand for Reverse Transcription - quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) analysis. This includes:
  • Mouse brain dissection
  • Tissue processing and preparation
  • RNA extraction
  • RNA purity & integrity analysis
  • cDNA synthesis
  • qPCR assay development, validation and analysis
Please contact us for more information.

We are currently not accepting any interns until 2018. Sorry for any inconveniences that may have caused you.
