Biography

Dr. Dang Duc Long is the Head of Research and International Office of VN-UK Institute for Research and Executive Education at the University of Danang. In this capacity, he has been implementing and facilitated various collaboration projects between the UK and Vietnamese partners, from UK-VN HEP projects, Researchers Links, to GCRF projects. With a Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry from University of Massachusetts at Lowell, Dr. Long has worked in a number of cross-disciplinary areas. He has a strong research record in bioinformatics and cellular development with notable scientific papers in top journals, such as Nature Structural and Molecular Biology, Nature Methods, Nucleic Acids Research, and Development. He has been involved in 7 nationally and internationally research projects. At present, Dr. Long is carrying out researches in bioinformatics, natural products, biosensors, and applying biotechnology in circular economy. He is also actively engaging in entrepreneurship activities in Vietnam, ranging from co-founding 02 start-up companies, teaching Design Thinking at the Institute, organising many innovation competitions, to mentoring various start-up projects in Danang.
