Chen, Ken - 陳根雄

Principal – 校長

About Me – 個人經歷

I moved to Houston after I graduated from UT Austin more than 20 years ago and since then I have been closely connected with ICC. I was very lucky to be able to expose my children to Chinese culture in the USA through the excellent programs
and environment provided by ICC. I was an assistant professor of Baylor College of Medicine and an associate professor of Nanyang Technology University studying and teaching human genetics. Other than supervising my Ph.D. students and
teaching genetics in the University; I was in charge of coordinating the graduate courses for the School of Biological Sciences. I was also appointed by Institute of Advanced Study of Singapore where we are responsible for inviting and engaging with Nobel Laureates to the University to educate the new generation and to advance science discovery. I enjoy traveling, sport and music.
我從UT Austin 畢業之後搬到休士頓已經有二十多年了,在這期間我一直和ICC關係密切. 我的三個小孩很幸運的在美國這塊土地上還能透過ICC這麼好的課程及環境下接受中華文化的薰陶. 我曾經是Baylor College of Medocine 的助理教授及新加坡南洋大學生命科學院的副教授. 我從事人類遺傳病的研究及教學已經有三十多年的歷史了. 我除了從事大學部及研究所分子遺傳的教學外,我也策劃研究所的課程及指導博士生的研究. 我也曾任聘於新加坡高等研究院(IAS)和諾貝獎得主聯繫及策劃新的科學研究方向及課題並擔任新加坡精英班的教學工作. 雖然我有很多教學經驗,但我卻是生命永遠的學生, 是遺傳基因的產物,獵人更是守護者. 我喜歡旅遊,運動和音樂.
