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. 
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. 
Professor Kuo (right) and Professor Ottersen (left) signed an MOU on academic exchange on 19 June.
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.
