NeuroBiology & Genetics Group or better known as NBGG is co-led by Associate Professor Pike-See Cheah (up) from the Department of Human Anatomy and Associate Professor Michael KH Ling (down) from the Medical Genetics Unit of Department of Biomedical Science, Universiti Putra Malaysia. The group is interested in deciphering the genetic components that regulate the molecular networks underlying the development of the mammalian brain. [Read more]
The group is currently focused on the following research activities:
- Characterisation of novel microRNAs involved in embryogenesis.
- Transcriptomic and functional analyses of the brain and the muscle of a mouse model for Down syndrome.
- Molecular screening of nucleic acid aberrations in selected neurological disorders.
