City University of Hong Kong (CityU) encourages research and innovation. By translating new knowledge and discoveries into applications, CityU contributes to the development of society.
The State Key Laboratory of Marine Pollution (SKLMP) at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has been endorsed by the United Nations (UN) to initiate a ten-year "Global Estuaries Monitoring (GEM)" Programme (www.globalestuaries.org) to collect and study environmental pollutants in the estuaries of major cities around the globe so as to formulate a long-term policy of promoting clean estuaries.
Innovative synthesis technique to unveil the crystal structures of next-generation TMD nanomaterials
A collaborative research team led by scientists from the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) recently overcame the barrier by developing a novel synthesis technique that combines the advantages of closed-system preparation of precursors and gas-solid reaction to produce a number of high-quality and pure unconventional metastable TMD materials in large quantities.
It is generally agreed that sperms “swim” by beating or rotating their soft tails. However, a research team led by scientists from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has discovered that ray sperms move by rotating both the tail and the head.
Glass is one of the most common subjects we see every day, but the detailed structure of this non-metallic and non-liquid material has always been a major mystery in science. A research team co-led by scientists at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has successfully discovered that the amorphous and crystalline metallic glass have the same structural building blocks.
By putting a piece of soft, strain-sensing sheet on the skin may be able to detect skin disorders non-invasively and in real-time very soon. A research team co-led by a scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has designed a simple electromechanical device that can be used for deep tissue pathology diagnosis.
A research team co-led by a scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a novel sponge-like material for capturing ambient nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the air, which offers a practical solution for controlling environmental pollution from NO2.
City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Zhejiang University, and other institutes has shown that urbanisation, croplands protection, and food security can co-exist in mainland China.
Biodiversity is of crucial importance to the marine ecosystem. The prohibition of trawling activities in the Hong Kong marine environment for two and a half years has significantly improved biodiversity, an inter-university study led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has found.
Dr Eddie Ma Chi-him, Associate Head and Associate Professor in the Department of Neuroscience and Director of the Laboratory Animal Research Unit (LARU) at CityU, is currently developing novel neural prosthetic devices that could improve patients’ motor symptoms and improve their quality of life.
