Researcher biography

Dr Quan Nguyen completed a PhD in Bioengineering at the University of Queensland in 2013. From 2013-2015, he was a postdoctoral researcher in Prof Piero Carninci's lab at RIKEN institute in Japan, where he developed novel genomics technologies to detect rare, functional RNA markers and he integrated multimodal genomics data to reveal novel transcription at DNA break sites. From 2015-2016, he returned to Australia as a CSIRO Office of Chief Executive (OCE) Research Fellow and developed computational methods to study genomic regulatory elements in mammalian genomes. In October 2016, he joined Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) as a senior research officer in a pioneering team on single-cell research. He was appointed to an IMB Fellow position in 2018 and was awarded an ARC DECRA fellowship. In 2019, he was appointed to a Group Leader position and is leading the Biomedical Machine Learning lab at IMB. He is looking for enthusiastic research students, research assistants and a postdoc to join his team.
