A research team consisting of scientists from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and Beijing Tiantan Hospital have uncovered the mutational mechanism of how a rare and deadly brain cancer –secondary glioblastoma (sGBM) – progresses from its less lethal type. The groundbreaking finding has provided a therapeutic lead which may develop into a new kind of treatment for chemo-resistant patients.
A research team from the State Key Laboratory on Advanced Displays and Optoelectronics Technologies of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has developed a new Liquid-crystal display (LCD), which image resolution, energy efficiency as well as color saturation were markedly enhanced, achieving a crucial breakthrough in display technology.
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is at the global forefront for the development of an e-fuel energy storage technology that will revolutionize the way energy is currently stored, and open up brand new possibilities for worldwide application.
A research team at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology recently invented a new fusion-based technology which achieves remarkably improved accuracy to position people indoor, enabling novel smart location-based applications such as indoor navigation, location-based personalized recommendation, crowd analysis and people flow control.
An international multi-disciplinary research team led by scientists at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has discovered for the first time a computational framework that could map out the fitness landscape of a crucial protein in the human immunodeficiency virus, potentially paving the way for rational design of a vaccine that may force the deadly virus to mutate into forms that lead to its demise.
Mr Kang Eun Jeon, a doctorate student in HKUST-NIE Social Media Lab under the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), has developed the “HKUST luXbeacon” – a Bluetooth Low Energy Beacon that can harvest and store energy from both solar and indoor lighting, thereby capable of operating without batteries.
