Dr. Thuy Ngo is interested in taking interdisciplinary approaches to develop novel methods for identifying biomarkers of cancer, detecting and elucidating developmental pathway of cancer and other medical diseases and conditions. The clinical and biological systems under studying include circulating cell-free DNA, RNA, extracellular vesicles, microbiome, tumor cells, tumor associated cells and tumor microenvironment. Her main tools are quantitative imaging, next generation sequencing, bioinformatics and molecular and cellular biology.
Ngo received her Ph.D. in biophysics and computational biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the guidance of Dr. Taekjip Ha and her postdoc with Dr. Stephen Quake at Stanford University.Read more
