Research Interests

Yiu Wing Kam (Jason)’s major area of research activity is on the study of the adaptive immune response in patients (focusing on IgG class switching and epitope identification). He is also interested in studying the virus-host interaction, findings from which will contribute to biomarker identification and immunotherapy development. In addition, he hopes to draw on his research knowledge to develop better vaccine candidates against infectious diseases (particularly epitope-specific antibodies and epitope specificity at single amino acid level). Furthermore, he seeks to develop new investigative techniques and data collection methods to explore new areas of research and derive results of publication quality.

He is also interested in identifying the use of EdTech tools to improve the learning outcomes of students during self-directed learning and team learning processes.

Jason has a B.Sc. in biochemistry from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, an M.Phil. in pharmacology from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and a Ph.D. in microbiology from the University of Hong Kong. He also served as a postdoctoral researcher between 2008 and 2019, at Singapore Immunology Network (SIgN), A*STAR. Before joining Duke Kunshan, he was a senior lecturer at Republic Polytechnic, Singapore.
