Dr. Kit Kwok obtained his B.Sc. in Chemistry (2009) from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, after completing an exchange program at University of California, Los Angeles in 2007-2008. He completed his PhD in Pennsylvania State University (2014), mentored by Professor Philip C. Bevilacqua and Professor Sarah M. Assmann. In Apr 2014, Dr. Kwok commenced on a postdoctoral fellowship as a Croucher Fellow in University of Cambridge under Professor Sir Shankar Balasubramanian FRS FMedSci. In Oct 2016, Dr. Kwok's joined the faculty team at the City University of Hong Kong as an Assistant professor. Dr. Kwok’s current research focus is to explore the role of RNA structures and interactions in biology, especially the functions of G-quadruplex structures in the human transcriptome and their relevance to health and diseases. Dr. Kwok has recently written a review “Detecting RNA G-quadruplexes (rG4s) in the Transcriptome.” that will be featured as a book chapter in the upcoming book “RNA Worlds: New tools for deep exploration, 5th Edition”.
