Dr PAN Feng
- +852 2766 6640
Dr Feng Pan received his PhD degree from Dr Stephen Massey's laboratory in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, Neuroscience Program of the University of Texas at Houston and MD Anderson Cancer Center in 2008. Then, as a postdoctoral fellow and research scientist, he worked with Dr Stewart Bloomfield in the Departments of Physiology & Neuroscience and Ophthalmology, New York University School of Medicine and State University of New York, College of Optometry. His research involved using a variety of physiological and anatomical techniques to investigate retinal gap junctions, circuits, and their functions in vision. Dr Pan also had residency and fellowship training in Ophthalmology, performing more than 500 vitreoretinal diseases surgeries, especially laser treatments. During his practice, he offered free surgery to help the needy in China. In 2016, Dr Pan joined the School of Optometry of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University as an Associate Professor.
