Dr SUNG SAM GONG
Sung is currently working as a senior research associate in bioinformatics at the Obstetrics & Gynaecology Department, School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge, on a project funded by the NIHR (National Institute for Health Research) to apply high throughput genome sequencing based methods to the placenta, comparing samples from complicated pregnancies (e.g. fetal growth restriction and pre-eclampsia) with matched normal controls. The focus of comparison includes analysis of methylation using whole genome oxidative bisulphite sequencing and analysis of coding and non-coding RNA. The overarching aims of the project are in two folds: 1) firstly to understand the landscape of methylome and transcriptome of the human placenta, and 2) secondly to identify biomarkers for fetal growth restriction and/or pre-eclampsia in the maternal blood.
