About me

  • Tracer Yong obtained his MD degree at Peking University (北京大學, 2016). He then moved to London where he began his research career and earned his MSc in Infection and Immunity at University College London (2018). After that, he lead a project at Academia Sinica in Taiwan developing a therapeutic cancer vaccine, during which he developed great interest towards tumour-host interaction and B cell immunology. Tracer Yong is now undertaking his PhD training in Lisa Westerberg's group at Karolinska Institute to investigate B cell lymphoma.

    Tracer Yong is a certified PADI open water diver and a former violinist at Peking University Symphony Orchestra.
