Dr. Koh Cheng Gee obtained her BSc(Hons) from the National University of Singapore and her PhD from the University of Cambridge, UK. She joined the School of Biological Sciences (NTU) in 2004 as Assistant Professor. She is currently Associate Professor and Associate Chair (Faculty) at the School of Biological Sciences.
Our laboratory is interested in the signal transduction events involving small GTPases of the Rho family, their regulators and effectors. These proteins play key roles in transducing extracellular stimuli into distinct responses including cell shape changes, cell motility, adhesion, cell division and phagocytosis. The emphasis of our current research is on the kinase PAK, its interacting protein PIX and a family of serine/threonine phosphataes of the PP2C family, POPXs.
