Dr Kelvin Tuong completed his PhD in the laboratories of Professor Jennifer Stow (j.stow@imb.uq.edu.au) and Professor George Muscat (g.muscat@imb.uq.edu.au) in the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) at The University of Queensland. His PhD research topic revolved around the nuclear hormone receptor RORα and its role in fat/lipid metabolism in the context of obesity and diabetes. Overall, Dr Tuong’s doctoral studies provided new evidence to support the role for RORα and oxysterol signaling as critical components in regulating metabolism and immunity.

Dr Kelvin Tuong is currently undertaking post-doctoral training in laboratory of Professor Ian Frazer (i.frazer@uq.edu.au, The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute) where he is conducting studies looking into factors that influence HPV-related cancer development and skin cancer development using molecular cell biology, immunology and next-generation sequencing approaches. He is particularly interested in how antigen presenting cells control the immunological dynamics within a cancer-like microenvironment and how that can be translated for better design towards effective immunotherapy.
