Shaun Sze-Xian Lim
MD/PhD Candidate in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University
I graduated from the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom, receiving a BA (with Honours) in Engineering, with a specialization in Bioengineering, and subsequently started my MD training at Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore. My prior research experiences involve biomaterials and mechanobiology, where I first worked on developing 3D microfibrous to expand and differentiate pluripotent stem cells and subsequently studied cytoskeletal forces in epithelial cells using traction force microscopy.
Currently, I am interested in developing molecular tools and technologies to study and manipulate neurons and their circuit dynamics.
