Distinguished CityU scholar wins Green Tech Award
Professor Wang Zuankai of CityU is one of nine recipients to win the 2021 Green Tech Award organised by the Meituan Green Tech Fund for his innovative multidisciplinary research on low carbon cooling and nature-inspired engineering.
Enhanced vaccine donation drive can end COVID-19 pandemic
Infection and mortality rates for COVID-19 could be significantly reduced if high-income countries donated 46% of their COVID-19 vaccine stocks to low- and middle-income countries, according to a team led by researcher at CityU.
	Correlation found between weather conditions and lower Covid-19 fatality rates: CityU research study
A correlation exists between the weather and humidity that patients are exposed to during different stages of COVID-19 infection and the probability of death, according to Dr Sean Yuan Hsiang-yu, Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at CityU, and PhD student Liang Jing-bo.
Super-elastic high-entropy Elinvar alloy discovered with potential for aerospace engineering
A research team led by a CityU scholar and other researchers have discovered a first-of-its-kind super-elastic alloy that can retain its stiffness even after being heated to 1,000 K (about 727 ℃) or above, with nearly zero energy dissipation. The team believes that the alloy can be applied in manufacturing high-precision devices for space missions.
5th wave Covid-19
A research team at CityU estimated in mid-January, that if social mobility decreases by around 25% when compared to the level during the Christmas and New Year holidays, a fifth wave will cause around 250,000 infected cases, which is similar to the current pandemic trend in Hong Kong.
