Dr Song Keang Peng

I am currently with the School of Science, and have been there for slightly over a decade. My specialisation is in microbiology and molecular biology. I conduct research on the mechanism of pathogenesis and infectious diseases, particularly on periodontal diseases. I enjoy working and interacting with students. During my free time, I like to do some outdoor activities such as jogging and swimming, and hunting for good food. I also like to travel when there is time to spare. I look forward to meeting and engaging with the Residential Support Team and the fellow residents in SMR. I wish you all the best for a fruitful, rewarding and successful 2016.
