Our multidisciplinary team members are as follows:
Professor Lee’s research is at the frontiers of neuropsychology and human neuroscience, focusing on the neuroplastic underpinnings of neurocognitive and affective functions, especially applicable for older people. She has published numerous scientific papers. She serves as an associate editor/editorial board member of influential journals that publish data-guiding research and practice of clinical psychology/neuropsychology and human neuroscience.

Prof. So is one of the pioneers in the field of axonal regeneration in visual system. He was the first to show lengthy regeneration of retinal ganglion cells in adult mammals with peripheral nerve graft. His team identifies neuroprotective and regenerative factors including: exercise, wolfberry, neurotrophic factors, peptide nanofiber scaffold, and environmental manipulation. His team currently focuses on the use of exercise, light therapy and Wolfberry polysaccharides to treat depression.
Professor Sham’s research interests include genetics and epidemiology of psychiatric disorders and statistical methodology for genetic and epidemiological studies. His research gains insight into the epidemiology and genetic mechanisms of complex traits and rare diseases by developing new statistical methods and applying them to large scale genetic data. Professor Sham’s research team has applied these methods to uncover new associated genetic variants and to improve our understanding of a variety of phenotypes.
Professor Chen has been working on understanding how the human mind could under some conditions enter into anomalous states, and how best to help people afflicted with these states of mind. He has been exploring the cognitive process, brain mechanisms, as well as the subjective experiences involved in the development of psychosis. With these understandings, he and his team have been working on how best to help people afflicted with psychotic disorders.
