A joint research team co-led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a novel computational tool that can reconstruct and visualise three-dimensional (3D) shapes and temporal changes of cells, speeding up the analysing process from hundreds of hours by hand to a few hours by computer. Revolutionising the way biologists analyse image data, this tool can advance further studies in developmental and cell biology.
artificial synapses
A joint research led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has built an ultralow-power consumption artificial visual system to mimic the human brain, which successfully performed data-intensive cognitive tasks. Their experiment results could provide a promising device system for the next generation of artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
mathematical model,disease transmission
A joint research led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has built a mathematical model to explore and analyse the relationship between disease transmission, people’s awareness about the disease and their resulting behaviours, as well as disease information spread by the mass media and opinion leaders.
A joint research team led by scientists from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has previously identified a pathogen’s transcription factors, the key proteins that are virulence-related. Recently, the team has further revealed the regulatory mechanisms of virulence of that pathogen, facilitating the development of new anti-bacterial drugs for prevention and treatment.
origin of an antibiotic resistance gene
“Superbug” resistant to strong antibiotics is a ticking time bomb in global public health. A joint study led by a scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has traced the potential origin of an antibiotic resistance gene and identified a type of bacteria as the possible source. The team also studied the gene’s transmission mechanisms and published their findings recently, in the hope of blocking its transmission.
millirobots, magnetic spray
An easy way to make millirobots by coating objects with a glue-like magnetic spray was developed in a joint research led by a scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU). As the magnetic coating is biocompatible and can be disintegrated into powders when needed, this technology demonstrates the potential for biomedical applications, including catheter navigation and drug delivery.
Google award,voice-based text composition
Dr Liu Can, Assistant Professor in the School of Creative Media (SCM) at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) is delving into the development of voice interaction for text composition. She has received an international award from Google Research in recognition of her promising work in this area.
Eco-engineered tiles
A joint-study led by a team of marine ecologists from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has found that the eco-engineered tiles can increase habitat complexity on seawalls in Hong Kong, thereby effectively enhancing the marine biodiversity. The Hong Kong study is part of a global research project on the relationship between habitat complexity and marine biodiversity on human-built marine structures.
Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is a large and diverse class of RNA (ribonucleic acid) molecules which has become a growing focus of cancer genomics studies in recent years. In this article, we will explain what lncRNA is and its functions.
nanomaterials, green concrete, CityU scholar
Professor Liew Kim-meow, a renowned engineer and Chair Professor in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at City University of Hong Kong (CityU), has been elected Foreign Member of the Academia Europaea for his significant contributions in engineering science.
