Biography

Biography

Henry H N Lam received the BSc degree (with distinction) in chemical engineering in 1998 and the MSc degree in computer science in 1999 from Stanford University. He received the PhD degree in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2005.

At MIT, Henry conducted research on utilizing the phase-separation property of surfactant systems for bioseparation, under the co-supervision of Prof Daniel Blankschtein and Prof Daniel I C Wang. His doctoral thesis is titled “Electrostatic and Affinity Enhancement of Protein Partitioning in Two-Phase Aqueous Micellar Systems.” He also spent 6 months on an industrial internship with BG Medicine, Inc. (formerly Beyond Genomics, Inc.) in Waltham, MA, working on building a lipidomics database and a method to identify lipids by tandem mass spectrometry.

After graduating from MIT, he joined the Aebersold Group at the Institute for Systems Biology, Seattle, WA, as a postdoctoral research scientist. There, he developed SpectraST, a software tool for building and searching tandem mass spectral libraries for proteomics. He was also actively involved in several computational proteomics projects, including PeptideAtlas, Trans-Proteomic Pipeline, PhosphoPep, and SRMAtlas.

Henry is now an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Bioengineering Program at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. His research interests include proteomics, metabolomics, mass spectrometry, computational and systems biology, and surfactant systems.
