Dr Charles Lau received his Bachelors in Applied Chemistry from the National University of Singapore in 2007. After graduation, he worked in the biopharmaceutical industry for 5 years as a protein purification scientist in Lonza Biologics PLC, United Kingdom, and as a manufacturing biotechnologist in Roche Singapore Technical Operations. In 2012 he returned to academia, and 2 years later he received a Master in Industrial Chemistry from the Technical University of Munich, Germany. In 2019, Charles graduated from NTU with a PhD in Bioengineering, under the supervision of Professor Teoh Swee Hin. He is now part of the research team in the SingHealth Duke-NUS Oral Health Academic Clinical Programme, working on biomaterials and animal models for periodontal and oral-maxillofacial regeneration. His PhD work in NTU, which was a collaboration in NDCS, won the best poster award in the Singapore General Hospital 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting in 2019.
