QueeLim Ch'ng was born in Singapore in 1971. He graduated with Highest Honours from Princeton University in 1995. He obtained a PhD in 2001 under the mentorship Cynthia Kenyon at the University of California, San Francisco. He performed postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Joshua M. Kaplan at University of California, Berkeley, and at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School from 2002 to 2007. He joined King’s College London in 2007. QueeLim has received several competitive awards at each career stage: an ERC Starting Grant (2009), a Research Councils UK fellowship (2007-2012), the Jane Coffin Childs Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship (2002-2005), and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Pre-doctoral Fellowship (1995-1998).

QueeLim is presently the KCL Institutional Lead on the Student Research and Training Committee, and a Member of the Management Board for the London Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme (LIDO), the largest BBSRC-funded programme in the UK and involves six London Universities.
