Research Contribution

Dr Pang studied Bachelor of Bioinformatics Engineering at the University of New South Wales. Dr. Pang completed PhD in 2010 on the topic "The Dynamics of Protein Interaction Networks", under the supervision of Prof. Marc Wilkins at UNSW. In his thesis, he explored different mechanisms that govern interactome dynamics - such as how changes in domain-domain interactions, post-translational modifications, and protein abundance can act to dynamically switch-on or switch-off protein-protein interactions. His current projects also include understanding how human inter-individual variation in gene expression affects the interactome, thereby providing insights into the cause of human diseases, including cancer. This will be done by developing an integrative framework for the analysis of gene expression, copy number variation, single nucleotide polymorphisms and disease phenotypes in the context of biological pathways and networks.

Dr. Pang is the first author of 4 original research papers, supporting author for 7 papers which includes a review article, and a book chapter. He has given oral presentations in 2 national and 3 international conferences, and has won 4 poster prizes in several conferences. He is also a co-inventor on a provisional patent application on microRNA treatment for diabetes. He was awarded the 2012 ASBMB fellowship for early career researcher to present their work in overseas conferences. He also gained 2 years of experience in the financial and IT security industry before his current role as a postdoctoral researcher.
