Full STEAM Ahead for Engineering Team
“As a university teacher of engineering, I think one of our missions is to promote the use of technologies and also inspire more students to study these subjects,” Dr. Wilton Fok said.
Dental AI to Engage the Community
The Covid-related restrictions have highlighted the problems faced by many in the community when it comes to receiving medical treatment in Hong Kong. In particular, many poorer, older citizens fail to get regular dental check-ups as they are unable to see a dentist.
Revolutionizing the Approach of Modular Integrated Construction with Smart Logistics
Quality inspection is the key in every construction project. The government has been adopting Modular Integrated Construction as a strategy to boost the productivity and quality of construction industry in Hong Kong. The remote e-Inspection system developed by the HKU architecture research team is a breakthrough to master the inspections remotely.

HKUMed Identifies Novel Host Protease Determinants for SARS-CoV-2 Infection
The study revealed additional protease determinants for the infection of ancestral SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV-2 Omicron BA.1, which contribute to our understanding of the biology of coronavirus entry.
Remote e-Inspection System for Cross Border MiC Logistics system
Building houses faster and safer for relieving the pressing housing shortage problem of Hong Kong
Breakthrough Technology to Measure Rotational Motion of Cells
Mechanics plays a fundamental role in cell biology. Cells navigate these mechanical forces to explore their environments and sense the behaviour of surrounding living cells. The physical characteristics of a cell’s environment in turn impact cell functions. Therefore, understanding how cells interact with their environment provides crucial insights into cell biology and has wider implications in medicine, including disease diagnosis and cancer therapy. Researchers have developed numerous tools to study the interplay between cells and their 3D microenvironment.
