Who We Are
Dr. Peiying Ho
PhD, Research Manager
Native to Singapore, Dr Peiying Ho holds a BSc in Life Sciences from the National University of Singapore (NUS), a joint MSc from the University of Basel in Switzerland and NUS, and a PhD in Microbiology & Immunology from NUS. Her doctoral work focused on the immune-modulatory effects of environmental mycobacteria on the BCG vaccine. She joined SMART in 2015 as a research fellow to study physiological effects of starvation stress on mycobacteria. Currently responsible for leading interactions between AMR researchers and the Core Technology Team, Peiying facilitates collaborations and manages projects supported by the Core Team and resources.
Dr Ho is involved in collaborative projects within the AMR IRG. These include elucidating the genetic mechanisms for bacteriophages against Pseudomonas aeruginosa through the use of bacteria mutant libraries, and developing flow cytometry-based methods for measuring bacterial physiological parameters.
