"I hope that one day we will progress enough such that a female in a leadership position in science isn't automatically a poster girl, because that would mean female science leaders won't be such a rarity. Younger batches need role models to look up to so that they know that working in STEM is a viable career option, even with children."

Huili wins the L'Oréal Singapore For Women In Science National Fellowship

L’Oréal Singapore awards For Women In Science National Fellowships, Dr Guo Huili, IMCB, A*STAR. Investigates how the control of translation impacts human health and disease. She uses a range of molecular biology and genomics techniques, including ribosome profiling.

"Dr. Guo’s lab investigates how the control of translation impacts human health and disease. Translation, the process by which information encoded in messenger RNAs is turned into functional proteins, is carried out by cellular machines known as ribosomes. This is a very basic mechanism that impacts multiple processes in the cell. Dr. Guo uses a range of molecular biology and genomics techniques, including ribosome profiling, to probe areas of the translation field that have hitherto been neglected, in order to gain new molecular insights and identify novel therapeutic approaches."
