Professor Joseph Wing-On Tam

Professor Joseph Wing-On Tam is the Founder and the Chief Scientific Officer of Pangenia Group, and the Chairman of the Board. Professor Tam is a research pioneer with over 30 years of teaching and research experiences in the biotechnology and diagnostics sector. Professor Tam was a Visiting Professor at UCSF School of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine and Medical College of Georgia. He was also a Scientist of National Institute of Health and an Honorary Associate Professor at School of Biomedical Sciences of The University of Hong Kong. He is the Founder and President of the Hong Kong Biochemistry Association.

Professor Tam has been working in the field of DNA research in Hong Kong since the late 1970s. With the support of UNESCO, Professor Tam organized a research programme and trained the first group of scientists in China and Asia-Pacific Region on recombinant DNA research in 1983. Professor Tam invented the “flow-through hybridization technology” (patented in the USA), which is currently the fastest hybridization process that is applied in DNA macro- and microarray.

Following his passion for Molecular Diagnostics, Professor Tam established DiagCor Bioscience Incorporation Limited in 2006, which is the core member company of Pangenia Group. He strives to influence and inspire the next generation talents in Hong Kong’s biotechnology industry.
