Alvin Ma 馬進恒
Dr. Alvin C.H. Ma is currently a Research Assistant Professor in Department of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong. He received his MPhil and PhD from The University of Hong Kong in 2005 and 2009 before further trained as Research Fellow in Mayo Clinic, Minnesota, United State. Dr. Ma research interest is focused on hematopoiesis covering basic and translational research areas including gene regulation in normal vertebrate hematopoiesis, molecular basis of human blood diseases and development of zebrafish models for human blood disorders. In particular, he used zebrafish (Danio rerio) as a model to study gene regulation of vertebrate hematopoiesis through reverse genetic approaches (Morpholino, custom nucleases etc) and novel regulatory functions of genes including Jak2a, Survivins, Metap2 and Aldh in hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) initiation, proliferation and differentiation have been elucidated. His original research findings have been published in leading international journals including Nature, Blood and Leukemia.
