Deputy Director, SBIC Head, Laboratory of Metabolic Medicine, SBIC Research Director, MHDU, IMCB
Weiping Han obtained his PhD in Physiology from Cornell University in 1996. He did his postdoctoral work at the University of Pittsburgh and HHMI/UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. In 2003, he was promoted to Research Assistant Professor in the Center for Basic Neuroscience at UT Southwestern Medical Center, where he studied molecular mechanisms of hormone secretion and signaling. In 2005, he moved to Singapore to set up a research programme in the Laboratory of Metabolic Medicine (LMM) at Singapore Bioimaging Consortium (SBIC). Currently he is Deputy Director of SBIC with concurrent appointment as Head of LMM. He is also Research Director at Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) (since 2012); Associate Professor in the Department of Biochemistry at National University of Singapore (NUS) (since 2007) and Faculty member in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disorders Signature Research Programme, Duke-NUS (since 2012), Adjunct Investigator at Singapore Institute of Clinical Sciences (SICS) (since 2008), and Adjunct Professor at Xiamen University (since 2013).
My research aims to understand the molecular basis of diabetes and its complications, to discover and validate targets for drug development, and to develop animal models for evaluation of therapeutic interventions. My lab uses molecular genetics, cell biology, and physiology techniques to analyse genetically modified animals and cell lines. The current major research projects are:
