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.
Two young scientists from CityU have been shortlisted for MIT Technology Review Innovators Under 35 (TR35) China, who are the only two awardees in Hong Kong.
The design-a-tiger-mascot competition has received over 180 highly creative submissions.
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.
Large-scale COVID-19 testing for small mammals is the focus of an exciting new partnership between CityU and the major global diagnostics and genetic testing company Prenetics.
Accurate estimate of 5th wave COVID-19 infections using CityU mathematical model; predicted peak yet to come
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.
CityU new structured thermal armour achieves liquid cooling above 1,000°C; solves challenge presented by Leidenfrost effect since 1756
A CityU research team has recently designed a structured thermal armour that achieves efficient liquid cooling even over 1,000°C, fundamentally solving a 266-year-old challenge presented by the Leidenfrost effect.
Four research projects led by scholars at CityU received grants worth HK$20.26 million in total from the inaugural Green Tech Fund. In terms of the number of projects and total amount of grants, CityU earned the top position among all local universities.
CityU is ranked 7th among the world's top young universities according to the Nature Index 2021 Young Universities, issued by the leading academic publisher Springer Nature.
