Dr. CS Ho's academic journey began at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada, where he received a BSc Hon in Biochemistry, followed by an MSc in Clinical Chemistry. His passion for the discipline led him to pursue further studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, where he was awarded a PhD in 1994. Since 1983, Dr. Ho has served as the scientific officer (medical) of the Department of Chemical Pathology at the Prince of Wales Hospital until his retirement in 2014. In 1986, he was appointed an honorary staff member at The Chinese University of Hong Kong and has been there until now. In 1995, Dr. Ho took on the role of the scientist in charge of the Biomedical Mass Spectrometry Unit at the University, where he developed a special interest in applying liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry techniques in clinical research and routine laboratory service at the hospital. Dr. Ho has supervised research projects for postgraduate students at the University's MSc in Clinical Biochemistry, MPhil, and PhD programs. Dr. Ho is a Fellow of the Hong Kong Society of Clinical Chemistry (HKSCC), where he has also served as past president. He was a founding council member of the Hong Kong Society of Mass Spectrometry. He is also an active technical assessor for the Hong Kong Accreditation Service for Medical Testing.

Specialised Research Area(s):

  • Applications of mass spectrometry techniques in clinical research and routine laboratory service
