Scientific Agreement that Promotes Health Engineering

23 OCT 2019

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) aiming at strengthening collaboration in health engineering was signed on 5 September 2019 by Professor Way Kuo, CityU President, and Professor Louise Richardson, Vice-Chancellor at University of Oxford, on behalf of both institutions. A number of guests including Professor Yuanting ZHANG attended the signing ceremony.

Being one of the leading causes of death worldwide, cardiovascular disease (CVD) has claimed almost twice as many lives per year as cancer in 2018 according to the World Health Organisation. Healthcare technologies are therefore urgently needed to tackle the problem, technologies included are: wearable healthcare devices; flexible and stretchable sensors, medical and molecular imaging; and artificial intelligence (AI)-based approaches. Prof Zhang is excited that he can contribute his expertise in cardiovascular health informatics, and unobtrusive sensing and wearable devices to facilitate such an important collaboration with CityU and Oxford.
