Boon Seng obtained his B.Sc. (1st Class Honours) from the National University of Singapore. As an A*STAR Graduate Scholarship (Overseas) recipient, he did his Ph.D thesis on the optimization of hES cell culture and differentiation towards pulmonary stem cells under the co-supervision of Prof. Athanasios Mantalaris, Ph.D (Imperial College) and Prof. Bing Lim, MD, Ph.D (Genome Institute of Singapore). In 2011, he joined the laboratory of Prof. Kenneth Chien, MD, Ph.D at Harvard University to work on the biology of multipotent cardiac stem cells, in both murine and human based model systems. His research focus has always been clinically driven with emphasis on understanding the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms in diseases and development of therapies. His current research interests focus on modelling human cardiac diseases using both 2D and 3D culture systems.
