Elucidating the role

Our efforts will focus not only on high quality scientific research but also or more importantly, the research and development (R&D) of effective treatment protocols or strategies for achieving functional bone regeneration of challenging bone disorders.Ultimately, our innovative functional biomaterials and treatment protocols will benefit our patients with a significant reduction on healthcare burden both locally and internationally.

Molecular genotyping and next-generation sequencing (NGS) approaches will identify key cancer mutations and other genetic aberrations to guide targeted treatment of metastasis.These e-fuels can be stored indefinitely without quality degradation and transported to wherever needed safely and easily.The electricity generated by e-fuel cells can be integrated into the grid.Theme 2: Developing a Sustainable Environment Project Title: Creation of rechargeable electron-fuels for stationary power supplies and electric vehicles Project Coordinator: Prof Tianshou ZHAO (HKUST) This theme-based research aims to address the challenges preventing the widespread use of renewable energy.We propose to develop a novel energy storage system that incorporates electrically rechargeable liquid fuels known as e-fuels.This proposed study of GIT cancers in Hong Kong using several integrative and novel approaches aimed to elucidate key drivers for tumor metastasis, heterogeneity, and evolution of chemoresistance will allow us to translate our findings into the clinic to improve diagnosis and patient stratification and identify actionable targets for precision medicine.

These studies will help to establish real-time analysis and accelerate the technology translation to the clinic to improve metastatic cancer control.

Utilizing archived formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues from good and poor responders to chemoradiation treatment will provide predictive biomarkers for chemoresponsiveness.

The detection of CTCs as early predictive biomarkers for tumor relapse is of vital importance to patients with advanced metastatic cancers in clinical trials and will guide targeted therapies to improve treatment outcomes for metastatic disease.

Yet it is a persistent problem in many urban areas, together with other photochemical pollutants including secondary organic aerosol (SOA).

Although it is known that the photochemical pollutants are formed by reactions of oxides of nitrogen (NO) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and that radicals play a key role, recent research has revealed key gaps in understanding the sources and processes of radicals and VOCs and the interactions of emissions from urban/industrial areas, vegetation and oceans.

Unlike any of the existing rechargeable battery technologies that operate on either charge or discharge, the e-fuel storage system can simultaneously store and release electricity, thus forming a stand-alone renewable power supply to power off-grid communities.
