On 26–28 June 2019, BMS held its fourth departmental Research Gala cum Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area Biomedical Forum at Zhongshan, China. The Zhongshan Municipal Government provided much kind support of the event, including the conference venue at the Jinhuayue International Hotel at Zhongshan.

We were fortunate to have Prof. Sir Colin BLAKEMORE and Prof. Yu-quan WEI as the keynote speakers with lots of exciting science brewing. Over 80 posters presented by students and staff members from BMS, and more than 20 exciting talks and interactions given by professors from the Department, The University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Sichuan University fruitfully filled the 3-day-2-night event. Staff and students were served with nice meals during their stay.

This year, a total of 10 Poster Presentation Awards were given to research students and staff. Congratulations to all the following awardees!
