Four scientists from Asia have been selected for the prestigious EMBO Young Investigator Program. They are among a crop of 28 researchers under 40 years of age, hailing from 11 different countries, to be inducted into the program this year. They join a network of 47 current and 417 past Young Investigators who represent some of the best up-and-coming group leaders in the life sciences in the world.
Among the four Young Investigators from Asia is Dr. Wan Yue, a senior research scientist at the Genome Institute of Singapore, who studies functional RNA elements in transcriptomes through genome-wide detection of RNA structures. She completed her PhD at Stanford University and, in 2014, became the first Singaporean to win the Branco Weiss Fellowship. In the following year, she was recognized with Singapore’s Young Scientist Award in Biological and Biomedical Sciences at the President’s Science and Technology Awards. She also received the L’Oréal Singapore For Women In Science National Fellowship in 2016.
