Ha Lam graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore with a Bachelor of Science (Biological Science) funded by Temasek Foundation. She then continued her journey to learn how to create new knowledge and produce good scientific work with a PhD study in the National University of Singapore (NUS) Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine funded by the President Graduate Fellowship.
