HKU-Standard Chartered Hong Kong 150th Anniversary Community Foundation FinTech Academy
A Synergistic Partnership between Academia and Industry to Steer FinTech Development and Groom World-Class TalentsThe University of Hong Kong (HKU) and Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited are proud to jointly announce the establishment of The University of Hong Kong – Standard Chartered Hong Kong 150th Anniversary Community Foundation FinTech Academy (HKU-SCF FinTech Academy) with a generous support of HK$60 million from the Standard Chartered Hong Kong 150th Anniversary Community Foundation (SCF).
HKU research team receives national funding to develop novel 3D bioprinting for human organs
An HKUMed research team received funding from the National Key R&D Program of China's Ministry of Science to advance bioprinting technology to include human tissues and organs.With cutting-edge 3D bioprinting technology, the project aims to develop functionable human tissues and organs including full-thickness skin, cornea, bone, cartilage and major blood vessels. The team expects to launch the first human pre-clinical trial within five years.
HKU Super Steel project attains major breakthrough with collaborators at Berkeley Lab in producing high strength steel at unprecedented levels of fracture resistance
The Super Steel project led by Professor Huang Mingxin at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Hong Kong (HKU), with collaborators at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL), has made important breakthrough in its new super D&P steel (produced using a new deformed and partitioned method) to greatly enhance its fracture resistance while maintaining super strong in strength for advanced industrial applications.
HKU biomedical engineers achieve significant breakthrough in neuroimaging with novel high-speed microscope to capture brain neuroactivities
Our brain contains tens of billions of nerve cells (neurons) which constantly communicate with each other by sending chemical and electrical flashes, each lasting a short one millisecond (0.001 sec). In every millisecond, these billions of swift-flying flashes altogether traveling in a giant star-map in the brain that lights up a tortuous glittering pattern. They are the origins of all body functions and behaviours such as emotions, perceptions, thoughts, actions, and memories; and also brain diseases e.g. alzheimer's and parkinson's diseases, in case of abnormalities.
HKU Engineering imseCAVE VR technology zooms into interactive teaching and learning
With the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus, the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) of the Faculty of Engineering at The University of Hong Kong (HKU) has deployed an innovative interactive platform based on internet technology and virtual reality (VR) to deliver online teaching and learning, in order to reduce contact among students.
