Executives and Management

Dr. SO, Daniel (BS, MS, PhD in Electrical Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison)

– Founder, Chief Executive Officer

Dr. So’s expertise is in semiconductor industry and nanotechnology. After earning his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he leaded multiple teams in Agilent, Hewlett Packard, and Intel to develop state-of-the-art technologies and products in integrated circuit, optoelectronics, and IR sensor.

Focusing on rapid DNA sequencing, Dr. So is one of the first few scientists and engineers who applied the semiconductor fabrication techniques and microfluidics to develop the solid-state nanopore sequencing system – SONAS®.

Dr. WONG, Ka Wai (BS, MPhil, PhD in Chemistry, The Chinese University of Hong Kong)

– Co-founder, VP of Research and Development

Dr. Wong have been focused in research and technology transfer covering areas including Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Nano-sensors, Advanced Materials and related Surface Treatment Engineering. After completed the PhD from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Department of Chemistry ) in 1999, he have joined Department of Physics in the Chinese University of Hong Kong, as postdoctoral fellowship and laboratory manager of Advanced Surfaces and Materials Analytical Centre. He then joined the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as research faculty and distinguished scientist.

During the years, Dr. Wong have published 98 international journal articles in total, and 14 international patents. He had in-charge more than 20 projects covering biotechnology and nanotechnology, involving more than USD 4.5millions research funds.

Dr. HO, Chi Yip (BS, Concordia University; PhD in Biochemistry, University of British Columbia)

– Co-founder, Chief Scientific Officer

Graduated from The University of British Columbia (Department of Biochemistry), Dr. Ho worked as the director of High-throughput DNA Sequencing Department in Toronto Mount Sinai Hospital (Canada). And, he was the person-in-charge to operate the research centre of next generation sequencing in The University of Chicago.

He have worked for advance biotechnology and genomic sequencing related scientific work for more than 15years. In the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) 2003, Dr. Ho leaded the 1st research team in Canada to do the reassembly of the virus of SARS.

Professor YAM, Chi Yung (Beijing Computational Science Research Center)

Being a team leader, Prof. Yam leads a capable research to investigate charge transport characteristics and phenomena using various modeling and simulation methods, such as multi-scale modeling, quantum mechanical simulation and molecular dynamics. He works with Genvida to investigate the subtle and complex translocation phenomenon through different nanopore configurations.

Strategic Partners

Professor TSANG, Stephen
(City University of Hong Kong)

Prof. Tsang is currently the Associate Professor in Department of Materials Science and Engineering in City University of Hong Kong, leading a research team on organic and nano electronics. He is a renowned expert in novel nano electronic devices and advanced characterization of electronic processes in organic and nano materials. He collaborates with Genvida to develop novel measurement techniques to collect and analyze the electrical and electronic signals induced by DNA translocation through nanopore.
