后疫情时代,人们越发深入认识到科学技术是同疾病斗争的锐利武器,莘莘学子也越发体贴生物科学的生长,有志于选择生物学作为本科专业。在这个配景下,我们邀请到了理工学院生物学助理教授Aloysius Wong博士来谈谈什么是生物科学、生物科研者需要具备的品质以及生物科学对世界生长的意义及未来前景。Aloysius Wong教授Aloysius Wong教授硕士结业于英国剑桥大学,在沙特阿卜杜拉国王科技大学获得生物科学博士学位,曾任法国国家科学研究中心(CNRS)细胞综合生物学研究所(I2BC)博士后研究员。

加入温肯大家庭后,他已乐成获得国家自然科学基金(NSFC)和浙江省国家科学基金会(ZJNSFC)两项资助,累计约50万元人民币。自2013年以来,他在SCI收录的期刊上揭晓了约30篇文章,包罗Plant Cell、Molecular Plant、Development、Plant Journal和Bio Informatics。他拥有一项激光农业系统的美国专利,研究项目“使用单波长灯种植植物项目”曾获得美国陶氏化学公司科研奖励。

克日,Aloysius Wong教授入选首批“浙江省高校领武士才造就计划”高条理拔尖人才造就工具名单。1.您来到温肯是出于怎样的机缘巧合?“我在法国接受博士后培训时,为了职业生长的下一步做准备,四处寻找学术界的事情。那时,我无意中看到了温肯的招聘通告,就特意去相识这所大学。

我得知,温肯是一所年轻的、有着弘大目的的高校。作为一名年轻的科学家,温肯的愿景与我的理想发生了共识。

因此我申请了这份事情,来到了这里。可以说,我和温肯因缘结识。

2.您能简朴先容下理工学院吗?“理工学院正处于迅速生长扩大中。学校投入了大量人力物力制作新的理工大楼、采购最先进的实验设备。理工学院的专业设置包罗生物学、数学和盘算机科学,今年还增设了化学和情况科学等新专业;秋季还将招收第一批生物技术硕士研究生。学院因拥有一批充满活力、满怀敬业精神的教职工而显得生机蓬勃,同时承袭以学生为中心的宗旨,并具有高度的前瞻性。

教授们都是努力的科研者,他们从世界各地获得了富厚的研究教学履历,以自身所学致力于为学生提供真正的全球视角。3.我们知道您到场了许多生物项目。

您能先容一下主要的研究项目吗?您对生物学的未来有什么看法?“在温肯生物系,有许多差别性质的研究项目,包罗药物通报、癌症生物学、情况科学、植物科学、生物信息学和抗生素耐药性。其中许多项目获得省市级、国家级及国际级的科研结果和奖项,研究结果也揭晓在相应的顶级国际期刊上。

我们的部门学生到场了研究历程以及论文撰写,在顶级刊物上拥有自己的署名。虽然我们学院比力年轻,但我们所做的生物项目质量很高,专注于生物系的前沿领域。在我看来,生物学是一门在人类不停寻找治疗疾病的方法并努力提高生活质量的历程中生长壮大的学科。

毫无疑问,生物学的未来充满希望。它的重要性愈发显现,特别是在当前的冠状病毒大盛行时期,全世界的科学家都在争分夺秒地相识这种病毒的特性,以便研发出一种有效的疫苗。4.您能从实际角度解释一下生物技术/生物科学对世界生长的意义吗?“除了寻找治疗人类疾病的方法,生物或更确切地说生物技术,通过开发更智能的诊断工具和康健跟踪装置来改善人们的生活质量。在未来,个性化的医学将助力于预防疾病,而人工智能预测算法将对生活的方方面面举行微观治理。

除了人类康健和疾病之外,生物学还使人类得以通过生物修复来掩护情况,例如使用基因工程微生物清理海洋中的石油泄漏和微塑料,掩护和繁殖濒危野生动物物种,降低全球变暖的速度;并通过研究对情况压力和疾病更耐受的作物,为全球粮食宁静作出孝敬。总而言之,生物学有着深远的全球影响和实际应用。5.您希望加入生物领域的人具备什么样的资质,您对思量从事生物科学的学生有什么建议?“或许在不久的未来,对有志在学术界事情的学生而言,博士学位、博士后研究培训以及有说服力的研究结果是必备的。

对于希望从事生物相关事情的人而言,硕士学位通常是足够的,但拥有一个博士学位肯定会开阔职业生长、提升的前景。同时,我会勉励他们攻读第二个研究生学位,如商业、治理或执法,或者选择一个混淆研究生学位,如英国剑桥大学提供的生物科学企业硕士学位。就业方面也可以思量政府和非营利组织的有趣且酬劳可观的事情。6.您希望学生们从你的课上学到什么?“我希望学生能造就缔造力、分析能力和独立思考能力,能够质疑和挑战现有的知识和生物学观点,而不是仅仅因为这些信息在教科书中就默然接受。

7.您能谈谈本科生做科学研究的可能性和须要性吗?“在日益猛烈的竞争情况中,实验技术对于有志于申请研究生的学生来说是一个分外优势。因为险些每个申请顶尖学校的学生都拥有很好的学术结果,那么研究履历将使他们在具备同样优秀的GPA申请者中脱颖而出。因此,本科生做研究是须要的。

就可能性而言,本科生从事研究的时机和硕士生和博士生相比确实较少。同时,本科生的课业肩负也比力重。

可是学生们可以使用暑假,在学校实验室、制药公司和医院等行业寻找研究时机。在温肯,小班制教学相较其他招生人数众多的学校而言,为学生提供了大量的研究时机。这正是我们的优势所在。

在本科生阶段获得有价值的研究履历虽然具有挑战性,但并非不行能,学生们的努力主动很是重要。Thinking about the significance of Bioscience in the post pandemic EraIn the post pandemic era, people will become more aware of how science and technology serve as lethal weapons to combat human diseases. Students become more concerned about the development of the biological sciences and are interested to choose biology as their undergraduate major. In this context, we invited Dr. Aloysius Wong, the assistant professor of biology at College of Science and Technology, to talk about what Bioscience is, the qualities that biological researchers need to possess, and the significance and future prospects of Bioscience for the development of the world.Dr. Aloysius received his master's degree from Cambridge University in the UK, and a doctoral degree in Bioscience from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC) of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). Since joining WKU, he has successfully obtained as principal investigator (PI), two external grants: one from the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and another from the Zhejiang Provincial National Science Foundation of China (ZJNSFC), accumulating to approximately half a million CNY. Since 2013, he has published approximately 30 articles in SCI-listed journals including Plant Cell, Molecular Plant, Development, Plant Journal and Bioinformatics. He has a US patent for a laser agriculture system. The research project "using single wavelength lamp planting plant project" has been awarded the Dow Chemical Corporation Research Award.1. What kind of coincidence brought you to WKU?While doing my postdoctoral training in France, I was looking around for jobs in academia as the next step of my career progression. I stumbled into a job advert by WKU and did some research on this university. What attracted me was the ambitious nature of this relatively new institution. As a young scientist looking to make the transition into a challenging role in academia, WKU’s ambition and goals resonate with what I wanted to do so I applied, and here I am. This opportunity was indeed a serendipity.2. What do you think of the College of Science and Technology?The College of Science and Technology is a rapidly expanding college at WKU. There have been significant investments to build new science buildings and to purchase modern state-of-the-art equipment. Besides Biology and Math, we also have a very strong Computer Science department. In addition to the existing undergraduate programs on offer, new programs such as Chemistry and Environment Science have also been launched this year. Notably, in this Fall, we will also recruit the first batch of Masters students in Biotechnology. With many motivated and committed professors and laboratory staffs, the college is highly dynamic, student-oriented, and very forward-looking. Our professors are active researchers who have all acquired rich experience from all over the world. They offer a truly global perspective to our students.3. We know you've been involved in a lot of biology projects. Can you introduce your main research program?What do you think of the future of biology?Within the Biology department at WKU, there are a number of research projects that are diverse in nature such as drug delivery, cancer biology, environmental science, plant science, bioinformatics, and antibiotic resistance.In my own research program, I investigate if the growth of plants can manipulated and if their traits can be precisely customized using advanced artificial lights such as LEDs and lasers. From there, we will then study using functional genomics approach, their molecular strategies such as the type of genes and proteins, that enable them to grow better under the different light qualities. With this knowledge, we can in future conduct biotechnological manipulations and use these precise light combinations and recipes to grow crops and cultivate economically important plant traits for indoor horticulture applications. The overarching goal of this research program is to contribute towards sustainable agriculture and global food security. At WKU, I also study antibiotic resistance in food and health supplements, in the local environments such as the Wen-Rui Tang river, and in probiotic lozenges for oral health. The latter is particularly exciting as we have recently collaborated with colleagues from the School and Hospital of Stomatology at Wenzhou Medical University. Many of our research projects are supported by grants from the national, provincial and municipal governments. Results from these research have also been published in top journals many of which, contain students as authors. Although we are relatively young, our Biology projects are of high quality and are within rapidly emerging research areas globally.In my opinion, Biology is a discipline that will only grow and develop as we continue to search for cures to various human diseases and seek to improve our quality of lives. The future of Biology is definitely promising. We live in a time where science and medicine has made huge progress. The success in curbing many infectious diseases, has allowed us to enjoy great prosperity in other areas of our lives although sometimes we may become complacent and overlook the contributions of science in our lives. The significance of Biology and medical sciences become even more apparent especially in the current coronavirus pandemic where scientists worldwide are racing against time to understand the behavior of this virus in order to develop an effective vaccine. Many economic, sports, arts and cultural activities, depend on the success of science so, Biology has been, is, and will continue to be, deeply intertwined in our lives.4. Can you explain the significance of Biotechnology/ Bioscience to the world’s development in practical terms?In addition to finding cures to human diseases, Biology or rather Biotechnology, also improves our quality of life with the development of smarter diagnostic tools and health tracking devises. In future, personalized medicine will help prevent a disease even before the symptoms appear while AI predictive algorithms will allow micromanagement of every aspects of our lives.Beyond human health and diseases, Biology also allows us to protect the environment through bioremediation efforts such as using genetically engineered microbes to clean up of oil spills and microplastics in the oceans, conserve and breed endangered species of wild lives, reduce the rate of global warming, and contribute to global food security through the development of crops which are more tolerant to environmental stresses and diseases. In other words, the global impact and practical applications of Biology is far-reaching.5. What kind of qualifications do you look for in people who want to join this field, and what advice do you have for students considering a career in Bioscience?In the current climate and perhaps also in the near future, students considering a career in academia will need a PhD and a strong research output as well as several years of training as a postdoctoral researcher. For those who wish to join the industry, a Masters degree is normally sufficient but a PhD degree will definitely enhance the prospect of career development, promotion and overall progression. Especially for those wishing to pursue a career in the industry, I would also encourage a second postgraduate degree in another field such as business, management or law, or choose a hybrid postgraduate degree such as the Masters degree in Bioscience Enterprise offered by Cambridge University in the UK. There are also government and non-profit organizations that offer exciting and rewarding Bioscience-related careers. 6. What do you hope students will learn from your classes? I hope that students can develop creative, analytical and independent thinking abilities. I wish students can question and challenge existing knowledge and biological concepts, and not just accept them just because these information are found in the textbooks. 7. Can you talk about the possibility and necessity of undergraduates doing scientific research?In an increasingly competitive environment, experimental skills will be an added advantage for those who wish to apply to graduate schools. It is fair to say that almost everyone who applies to top schools has good grades so research experience will allow undergraduate students to stand out among a pool of applicants with equally good GPAs. It is necessary for undergraduate students to do research. Regarding the possibility, it is true that undergraduate students have fewer opportunities to do research compared to Masters and PhD students. Undergraduate students are also normally burdened by heavy load of classes. But students can seek research opportunities during the summer holidays whether in our labs at WKU or at another institution, or even in the industry such as in pharmaceutical companies and hospitals. At WKU, the relatively small class size actually provides students with numerous research opportunities which are not normally offered in schools with large enrollments. So, this can be considered as our strength. While challenging, it is not impossible to gain valuable research experience at the undergraduate level. Students just need to be proactive and motivated.文字丨陈跃制作 | 王智耀责编 | 媒体中心。
