Tiny soft robot with multilegs paves way for drugs delivery in human body
A novel tiny, soft robot with caterpillar-like legs capable of carrying heavy loads and adaptable to adverse environment was developed from a research led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU). This mini delivery-robot could pave way for medical technology advancement such as drugs delivery in human body.
Smaller, faster and more efficient modulator sets to revolutionize optoelectronic industry
A research team comprising members from City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Harvard University and renowned information technologies laboratory - Nokia Bell Labs - has successfully fabricated a tiny on-chip lithium niobate modulator, an essential component for the optoelectronic industry. The modulator is smaller, more efficient with faster data transmission and costs less. The technology is set to revolutionise the industry.
Professor Luk Kwai-man
One of the top scientists at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in the UK in recognition of his profound contributions to advancing the development of antennas.
Disorder or Driver? A New Theoretical Model to Study the Effects of Nomophobia on Job Productivity
How much time per day do you spend on your smart phone? Nomophobia, meaning anxiety of being without a mobile phone, has been confirmed to a universal phenomenon in studies in various countries. But how nomophobia affected employee’s work-related outcomes was yet to know. A social scientist at City University of Hong Kong and her research team have developed a new theoretical model to explain the dual effect of nomophobia on employees’ job productivity. 
A research team led by Professor Li Ying has recently discovered a brain signalling molecule that can improve decision-making performance.
A research team led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has discovered a brain signalling molecule that can improve decision-making performance. The discovery paves the way for effectively mitigating cognitive dysfunctions caused by chronic pain. 
Professor Lu Jian (left), Dr Liu Guo and the research team have developed the world's first-ever 4D printing for ceramics.
A research team at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has achieved a ground-breaking advancement in materials research by successfully developing the world’s first-ever 4D printing for ceramics, which are mechanically robust and can have complex shapes. This could turn a new page in the structural application of ceramics. 
Estimating optimal vaccination coverage for goat plague eradication
To support the global initiative on eradicating peste des petits ruminants (PPR), also known as goat plague, veterinary expert from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) worked as part of an international research team to develop a dynamic model for estimating the optimal vaccination coverage required for eradicating this disease. They have found that rather than aiming for uniform vaccination coverage across the whole population in a particular country or region, the most effective way to eradicate the disease should involve targeting specific sub-populations acting as viral reservoirs.
CityU seizes data science initiative
The launch of the School of Data Science (SDSC) and the Hong Kong Institute for Data Science (HKIDS) at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) heralds a new era in higher education in Hong Kong.
NANO 2018 explores wonders of science and technology
The 14th International Conference on Nanostructured Materials (NANO 2018) was successfully held from 24 to 29 June at City University of Hong Kong (CityU), with about 600 international scholars and researchers famous in nanotechnology fields, coming from 35 countries/regions and 300 different research organisations. 
World’s first: 3D-printed magnetic microrobots delivering cells to precise locations in the body
In a world’s first, a team of researchers at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a magnetic 3D-printed microscopic robot that can carry cells to precise locations in live animals.
