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. 
New strategy to harness red blood cell vesicles for gene therapies against cancer
A research led by Dr Minh Le, Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a new strategy to generate large-scale amounts of extracellular vesicles (EVs) derived from red blood cells (RBCs) which can efficiently deliver gene therapies against cancer.

A framework for collaboration on academic exchange, cultural interchange and cooperation in teaching and research will be created thanks to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and Karolinska Institutet (KI) in Sweden. 
Dr Wang believes his latest research finding could provide some insight for the exploration of new mechanisms to manipulate sound waves.
It is well-known that sound wave carries dynamical phase during propagation. A latest research conducted by researcher from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and his collaborators from other universities has demonstrated a new type of phase of sound: the spin-redirection geometric phase. 
HKSTP delegation tours CityU labs
A delegation from the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) led by Mrs Fanny Law Fan Chiu-fun, Chairperson of the Board of Directors, visited laboratories at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) on 1 June. 
Research team includes Professor Paul Chu Kim-ho (left) and PhD student Wang Guomin
A research team led by Professor Paul Chu Kim-ho, a materials engineering expert at City University of Hong Kong (CityU), has developed a capacitive coating that kills bacteria when it is charged with electricity. When applied to orthopedic implants such as artificial joints and dental implants, the novel technology can reduce the risk of infection after surgery and help patients recover more quickly.

In a world’s first, an international research team led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has discovered that diamonds at nanoscale can undergo ultra-large, fully reversible elastic deformation, findings that could have a profound impact on the nanotechnology and biomedical fields, and even quantum information technologies.
Dr Carol Lin Sze-ki believes the new bioconversion process can not only help address the waste problem but also create a sustainable and circular economy.
Innovative green technology capable of recycling mixed textile waste into value-added products, such as synthetic fibre and bioplastics, is developed by a researcher team from the School of Energy and Environment (SEE) at City University of Hong Kong. The team recently won a Gold Medal at the 46th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
