Vice-President (Research)'s Picks: Understanding the Brain's Role in Balance and Beyond

VP(R)'s Picks: Understanding the Brain's Role in Balance and Beyond

Our body coordinates balance and movement through the inner ear, but it has been difficult to study the extent of the brain’s involvement and importance. A new breakthrough by HKU MRI scientists overcomes this challenge, opening new pathways for research into this critical but poorly understood bodily system.

VP(R)'s Picks: Scaling Up Tech Innovation in the Classroom

The success of e-learning in schools has more to do with pedagogy than technology, as demonstrated in a Faculty of Education study of 10 special education needs (SEN) schools in Hong Kong that were determined to give their students the same learning opportunities as those in mainstream schools.

VP(R)'s Picks: New Discovery on Cell Division

VP(R)'s Picks: New Discovery on Cell Division

Errors in cell division can mean cells end up with an abnormal number of chromosomes, leading to disease and other health problems. Research from the School of Biological Sciences explains how these errors may arise, opening a new avenue for exploring diagnostic biomarkers and potential therapies.

VP(R)'s Picks: A Breakthrough in Stem Cell Technology

VP(R)'s Picks: A Breakthrough in Stem Cell Technology

Embryonic stem cells generally are established from pre-implantation embryos made up of dozens of cells called blastocysts. But HKU scientists have managed to capture stem cells from embryos much earlier in the development process. Moreover, they have achieved this for multiple animal species such as mice, humans and pigs. The research opens up wide new avenues for science investigation, translational medicine and biotechnology.
