Dr. Heylie Wong obtained her bachelor’s degree in Medical Laboratory Science at Southern Medical University in 2012, and her doctoral degree in Biomedical Science at The City University of Hong Kong in 2021. Her PhD study mainly focused on human learning and memory. She successfully developed a specific Cholecystokinin (CCK)-Ph probe to dynamically explore the excretion of CCK in the hippocampus and studied the function of CCK in the Auditory Cortex as well as Hippocampus, and further classified the interaction between CCK and NMDA receptors. Between 2019 to 2022, she worked as an Associate Medical Technologist in the Department of Chemical Pathology at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Hong Kong and was equipped with frontline clinical as well as technical knowledge, namely Next-generation sequencing for human inherited disease detection. In October 2022, Dr Wong was appointed as a Senior Lecturer in the School of Medical and Health Sciences at Tung Wah College. Her research focuses on the neurotransmitter secretion in the hippocampus and the related molecular detection of brain disease.
