Dawn Chin-Ing Koh is Dawn Chin-Ing Koh is a biomedical scientist with specific interests in neuroscience and cancer research. She has extensive experience using both in vitro (cell lines) and in vivo (mouse models) studies in her research. As part of her postdoctoral research at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, USA, she studied the role of a truncated neuroreceptor (TrkB) in cancer development. She screened several cancer cell lines for factors that regulate its activity using various molecular biology approaches. Additionally, she performed animal studies using a mouse model with astrocytomas to examine the role of TrkB neuroreceptor in tumour progression.
