"Hi! My name is Huong, a Vietnamese girl. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology from Vietnam National University of Agriculture and a master’s degree in Bioscience from National Formosa University, Taiwan. I went back to Vietnam and worked as a researcher in about 4 years at Institute of Biotechnology, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology. In 2019, to go further in my career, I enrolled a Doctoral program of Biological Science at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan. My thesis topic was Unfolded Protein Response, a cellular signaling pathway to adapt with environmental stresses of Endoplasmic Reticulum. I am currently working as a postdoc at Dr. Lien’s lab. We are now focusing on the topic of tandem repeat expansion involving Alzheimer's Disease. Besides the lab, I like to enjoy nature, gardening, and swimming (even I am not good in swimming but it could be improved soon). I also love to talk with my family and hang out with friends in my free time."
