Chasing Dream to Make Greater Medical Impact

A team comprised of an HKUST alumnus and two postdoc fellows has embarked on an entrepreneurial journey to commercialize their proprietary smart hydrogel technology that will bring about next-generation therapeutics, with much-needed support provided by the tech transfer arm of HKUST.


Engineering your future

Prof. Thomas HU is on a mission to show his students from a wide range of disciplines just why civil engineering can help them tackle major real-world challenges such as infrastructure safety and housing shortage facing Hong Kong today.


The bacteria that could fight global warming

HKUST researchers have discovered a mechanism that helps boost the ability of eco-friendly aquatic bacteria to absorb more carbon dioxide in the ocean and produce more marine oxygen, possibly slowing down global warming.


Unlocking cancer-causing mechanism

By using a novel biosynthetic method, interdisciplinary researchers at HKUST found the missing piece of how a toxin released by E. coli is connected to colorectal cancer, facilitating future research on the prevention of this third most common cancer worldwide.


More powerful AI on its way

HKUST has developed the world’s first all-optical multilayer neural network for deep machine learning, enabling AI to function like biological brains in tackling complex problems at the speed of light using much lower energy consumption.


Life changing power of giving

Four HKUST community members recounted how the Alumni Endowment Fund helped them get through financial setbacks and hard times during their studies, and disscused their aspiration to better the lives of others by giving back.
