Tong was interested in applying engineering ways to improve human health. He started his B.S. study in health science with minor study in electrical engineering from Peking University. Then he finished his study of BME M.Phil. program from HKUST. In this lab, he is interested in figuring out the signal pathways of axon degeneration and neuron death in axotomy model and other neurodegenerative models, respectively. He cherishes the chance of working with so many experts in the lab.
