Centenary researcher named 2019 SOAR Fellow

Dr Justin Wong - Centenary Institute


Dr Justin Wong is among 20 University of Sydney academics, who have been named 2019 SOAR Fellows.

Dr Wong, Head of Centenary’s Epigenetics and RNA Biology Program, is currently focused on researching ribonucleic acid (RNA) splicing and RNA modification in relation to cancer.

As part of the SOAR Fellowship, he will receive $100,000 over the next two years to further his research.

In particular, the funding will help him to better understand the roles of RNA splicing and modification in diverse human cancers, and in turn, identify new ways to target abnormalities in these processes to improve cancer therapies.

Congratulations Dr Wong on this major achievement!
