Prof. Simon Ng Siu-man: Risk for families of patients with high-risk polyps of having the same disease is 6 times higher

22/06/2016

Photo source: Headline Daily

CUHK’s Faculty of Medicine announced yesterday the outcome of a large-scale prospective study they conducted earlier, which is the first of its kind globally. They discovered that if patients have ‘high-risk polyps’ (or ‘precancerous adenomas’) in their large intestines, the risk for their immediate siblings of having the same disease is 6 times higher. Prof. Simon Ng Siu-man is an expert in colorectal surgery from the Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, CUHK, and a fellow of S.H. Ho College. He said that since colorectal cancer mainly developed gradually from intestinal polyps (adenomas), if intestinal polyps could be discovered and removed before they transformed to cancerous tumors, the chance of getting colorectal cancer would be lowered effectively.

Prof. Lawrence Wong: Discovering New Therapeutic Solution for Minor Stroke in Global Study with over 30 Countries

17/05/2016

Aspirin is currently the most commonly used drug to prevent recurrence of Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or minor stroke . However there has been concern about the associated risk of hemorrhagic events, such as bleeding in the brain and gut. A global study jointly led by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and neurology centres from over 30 countries has revealed that another antiplatelet agent ‘ticagrelor’ could potentially be an alternative drug to prevent recurrent stroke. Ticagrelor is found to be more effective than aspirin in preventing ischemic stroke. It can reduce the risk of recurrence by 13%. The findings were presented this month at the European Stroke Organization annual meeting in Barcelona and were published in a leading international journal, The New England Journal of Medicine.

Prof. Lawrence Ka Sing WONG, Mok Hing Yiu Professor of Medicine, Head of Division of Neurology, Department of Medicine and Therapeutics CUHK and Member of S.H. Ho College added, ‘The benefits of ticagrelor over aspirin were more obvious in four groups of patients. The first group was of patients who were already taking aspirin when they developed a stroke or TIA, meaning that aspirin might not be strong enough to inhibit platelet aggregation in this special group of patients. Other groups that showed benefits included those patients who were treated early within 12 hours of the onset of symptoms, aged below 65 and Asians.’

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible central vision loss in elderly. A recent study by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has discovered a protein called Angiopoietin2 that correlates with the severity of Wet AMD. Scientists from the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences of CUHK have found that the level of Angiopoietin2 is significantly elevated inside the eyes of patients with Wet AMD as compared to normal people and that it correlates with vision loss and macular swelling. Dr. Mårten Erik BRELÉN, Assistant Professor, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Director of CUHK Pao So Kok Macular Disease Treatment and Research Centre said, ‘We believe the study can lead us to further our work in clinical genetics, to help us identify specific gene variants within the angiopoietin gene that increase the risk of developing Wet AMD.’ Dr. BRELÉN is a member of S.H.

This spring, 40 students of the General Education Foundation Course ‘In Dialogue with Nature’ had the rare opportunity to experience nature’s awakening via toiling with the earth—as partial fulfilment of their coursework. Commonly taken by Year 1 and 2 students, this course traditionally features a ‘participation’ scheme that awards students for participating in online discussion forums. This semester, Dr. Kenneth Li (SHHO member), one of the lecturers of the course, offered a new option to his class  to participate in three sessions of hands-on vegetable planting on the rooftop of Hui Yeung Shing Building instead. The new option, offered as a trial, proved so popular that students had to draw lots to get in. Please click here to peruse the news.

 

Cleaning and Greening: Dean of Engineering leads the way to cleaner energy

01/04/2016

Source: CUHK ISO

Under the leadership of Prof. Wong Ching-ping, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering at CUHK and Fellow of S.H. Ho College, the University has become a ground-breaking institution in terms of its work on renewable energy. Since 2014, it has won substantial backing to fund research that it is leading on that front.The Hong Kong government has awarded a grant of HK$60.33 million (US$7.8 million) in funding. CUHK is contributing another HK$13.8 million, with the other universities involved adding another HK$3 million. CUHK is cooperating with Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and The University of Hong Kong in the work. In the 2013/14 exercise of the Theme-based Research Scheme by the University Grants Committee, only three projects were funded. So what is the weight of expectation? “Heavy,” Professor Wong says. “We have to make sure the money is well spent and we get something out of it.” Professor Wong, who also holds a post in CUHK’s Department of Electronic Engineering, knows very well how to produce results. He spent 19 years with AT&T Bell Labs and 15 years with Georgia Tech before joining CUHK, focusing on semiconductor packaging. He had already been, as a graduate student, the first person to synthesize the first known lanthanide porphryn, a heavy-metal element porphryn complex, which has properties that appear to help combat cancer. At CUHK, he has been working with Prof. Zhao Ni, also in CUHK’s Electronic Engineering Department, as well as their team of students and post-doctoral collaborators, on asymmetric super-capacitors. Those are vital for the storage of green energy, since solar and wind power are intermittent. “You want that power for the evening,” Professor Wong notes. The research team that Professors Wong and Zhao lead has developed nanostructured metal oxide-carbon composites for asymmetric super-capacitors that exhibit high energy and power densities of 98.0 W h kg-1 and 22,826 W kg-1. Super-capacitors have great power density but low energy density, while a battery has low power density but high energy density. The CUHK team is working to combine the two to form a hybrid “capaciterry.” For details of the feature, please click here

When secondary-school students learning English in Hong Kong get back their assignments from their teachers, they sometimes find themselves staring at a sea of red ink. Their instructors feel an obligation to mark up every single mistake, just as their own work was graded when they grew up. But they are doing their students and even themselves a disservice, according to the research of Prof. Icy Lee, the chair of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at CUHK and a member of S.H. Ho College. They burden their charges with a host of changes that they don’t always understand – and they burden themselves with hours of unproductive grading, a task that many say is their least-favourite aspect of teaching.

Prof. Ng Yuet-lau: Lingnan School of Painting

02/03/2016

Lingnan Chinese Painting could be traced to two progenitors in Qing dynasty, the cousins Ju Chao and Ju Lian. Gao Jianfu, Gao Qifeng, and Chen Shuren were their most famous followers, becoming known as the ‘Three Masters of Lingnan’. Prof. Ng Yuet-lau, a closed disciple of Chao Shaoang who was under tutelage of Gao Qifeng, has been assiduous in promoting the Lingnan painting. The Lingnan School focuses on sketching in nature, where different objects found could be artistic themes. Bright colours adopted in Lingnan painting have marked a watershed from other Chinese painting schools. The ‘Lingnan Images—Paintings by Prof. Ng Yuet-lau and Prof. Philip Chiu’ held at S.H. Ho College, CUHK is the first location of the Lingnan masters’ roving exhibition. The artworks, altogether more than 50 pieces, range from their representative Chinese paintings, paintings of Ling Ngai Association members, to the works by students of S.H. Ho College and Christian Zheng Sheng College. The themes cover landscapes, flowers and birds, as well as local customs and humanity aspects. Having appreciated the refined artworks, visitors would have an overall impression of the multi-faceted dimensions of Lingnan Art. Prof. Ng Yuet-lau is an Honorary Fellow of S.H. Ho College, CUHK.

香港中文大學的校園,聳立着一個3.5米高的銅質雕塑《家》。

仰望那一筆而成的草書,糾結交錯,柔韌勻穩,勢不可遏。在藍天下自由自在、歡快豪邁。

懸空的立體草書,動感流暢圓勁有力,使轉如環不受困頓,這是本港雕塑藝術家朱達誠的大作。他謙遜地說:「我不會書法,但喜歡書法的神韻,嘗試將書法傳神於空間。」

藝術是共通的,只是媒材不同,他將平面的書法,演繹於三維空間,既有雕塑的造型原理,又有草書的筆意,使字體立於空間,更突顯透光之美,別有一種境界!

分明懷素蹤

這空靈韻緻的「家」字,若唐詩云:「何處一屏風,分明懷素蹤。雖多塵色染,猶見墨痕濃。」家,從來是人類的棲所,即使是四海為家,仍離不開個家字。

常言道家是寧靜的避風港灣,學校是年輕學子修練心靈、增加學識、共譜壯志的大家庭,大學是培育人才的基地,名家輩出,由此釀造。對此清風聖地感慨無限,捍衞可貴的學術獨立,一掃陰霾及記憶的傷痕!

朱達誠1942年生於湖北武漢, 1957年入讀湖北美術學院附中,1960年升讀湖北美術學院雕塑系,1965年畢業留校任教。未幾即爆發文化大革命,學校停課、工人停工,朱達誠下放到武漢郊區黃陂縣勞動。

閒來技癢的他,拿起地上的紅黏土捏泥公仔,農民見他手指玩着的泥土,瞬間變出不同的人兒,十分好奇請他傳授絕招。從此每朝跟村民下田耕種,晚上便教他們泥雕,彼此在泥土中磨練。

跟他學藝的人愈來愈多,朱達誠把課室搬到農村,充實的數載一晃而過,農民們雖沒有美術根底,卻興致勃勃,很快能捏出不同表情的小泥人來。

鄉領導也是個愛雕塑之人,聽聞縣裏有個學習班,乘勢找下屬編排內容,請農民把家史、村史和文革樣板戲等,變為栩栩如生的泥雕,然後挑擔運到四鄉各處,搞巡迴展覽的「泥塑擔」活動,甚至自發舉辦小型泥塑展覽和陳列室,鄉里扶老攜幼齊來觀看。

群眾性又新奇的政治宣傳,打破了沉悶枯燥的模式。新華社派幹部前往考察、《人民日報》頭版報道刊登,黃陂縣成了革命樣板的新星。朱達誠以短、平、快的教育方法,培訓了逾四百位泥塑者,上萬件的創作品,拔地而響,一鳴驚人!

「黃陂縣農民泥塑展覽」在北京美術館隆重舉行,部分作品被收藏,文革後,大學重新招生,對象是工、農、兵學員,因此他的農民學生有的考上湖北美院、四川美院、中央美院等雕塑系……朱達誠無心插柳柳成蔭,也順理成章入中央美術學院雕塑系研究生班,此後任湖北美院雕塑系主任、中國美術家協會會員。

朱達誠中年定居香港,他重新考量雕塑的創作素材,如何設計公共的視覺藝術,營造中華文化的時代精神,融入香港這國際都市。

自由平等愛

擅長人像雕塑的朱達誠,曾為抗沙士殉職的七位醫護英雄造像,也曾為孫中山紀念館製造國父銅像及香港中山公園創作孫中山辛亥革命雕像,亦曾為遮打爵士、霍英東、董浩雲、唐君毅、利榮森、蕭邦等人物作像。當中最特別是沙田文化博物館裏的一代巨星李小龍像(高3.5米),愛恨分明與嫉惡如仇的神采,代表了香港人所崇敬的精神。

30年來,他對香港雕塑界建樹良多,佳作連綿。2007年獲香港特區政府頒授榮譽勳章。現為香港大學及中文大學進修學院藝術課程導師,並開辦藝術工作室,近年被選為香港美術家協會副會長。

雕塑結構的收歛與擴張,造型的力量及美感,體積的穩定和剛柔,是挑戰智慧、體能、毅力、科學的一門藝術。書法融入立體的空間,是現代建築配合雕塑嶄新藝術語言,漢字是我們民族感性的象形符號,以物的形為主,延伸智的覺,我們的祖先對宇宙人生概念,產生情感濃郁的隱喻特徵。

著名的藝術家除了機運,依歸生命體驗和藝術經驗。朱達誠依循莊子哲學「與物為一,與大化同游」的旨趣,完成他多件精美的巨作,以及孫中山格言「博愛、自由、平等」書法銅雕 …… 他將繼續開創方圓互動、陰陽調合的東方美學三維空間意象。

陳家樂培養學生跨科才能 回歸中大 改革商學院 

去年在科大商學院工作十八年的陳家樂教授,「回歸」母校中大擔任商學院院長,統領一百多名教職員和四千多個學生。新官上任半年,他已滿腹大計,希望協助母校商學院更上一層樓。他覺得香港社會重視商業,但未來社會對企業責任、創新和領導能力有更大需求,會注重培養學生跨學科的才能,更會擴闊學生視野,讓學生更有發展空間。記者 勞顯亮

從科大商學院署理院長,回歸母校擔任商學院院長,陳家樂上任的首要任務,就是要應付學院教授的退休潮,計畫未來三十五年招聘的教授,佔現時人手的四分之一。「我們會努力在全球招聘,除了要填補教授退休的空缺,更要適應未來十年的市場和社會變化,為學生做好準備。有幾個方面我希望加強,如企業社會責任、領導能力和創新,這些並非像會計、金融那樣是一個特定專業,但都是社會有很大需求和訴求的範疇。」

上任先應付退休潮

招聘計畫已逐步落實,今年九月新學年,中大商學院就有十四位新教授加盟,還有多位講師,當中不乏資深和有分量的學者,會兼顧教學和研究,「有一位教授是市場學、醫療和心理學跨學科。」

香港是國際金融中心,但近年面對內地和東南亞其他城市急起直追的挑戰,經濟轉型亦令香港的競爭力受到挑戰,陳家樂覺得「創新」將成為香港成功的關鍵,「香港向來是一個重視商業的社會,土地不足亦窒礙了香港部分產業的發展,所以更應該重創新,繼續發揮香港的優勢。商學院的學生未必熟悉科研,但要了解科技是怎樣一回事,會通過不同的跨學科合作,將科技與商業元素結合,讓學生涉獵不同的範疇,做好『全人教育』。」

社會責任同樣重要

現時中大商學院與工程學系、新聞及傳播學系,均有開設雙學位的本科課程,學生修讀五年,就可以拿到兩個學位,亦與理學院辦計量金融學及風險管理的四年制課程,與社科院合作環球經濟和金融學士的課程。以往本港的狀元,最愛選擇法律和醫學院,但前年中大商學院的環球商業學本科課程,就成為DSE收生最高分的學科。陳家樂不覺得學生選擇商科功利,但會注重培養學生對社會的責任和道德。

陳家樂亦注重學生的國際視野,會爭取六成商學院的學生到海外交流,「如我們的環球商業學本科課程,與美國北卡羅來納州大學商學院(UNC)和丹麥哥本哈根商學院(CBS)合作,三所大學的學生有一年半的時間,在三個不同地方一齊學習,不只是做一個學期的交換生,而是一同生活,學生完成計畫後,可以與外國的同學保持緊密聯繫。還有與美國哥倫比亞大學合辦的國際貿易與中國企業課程,中大的學生將會有一年至一年半的時間與哥倫比亞大學的學生相處,要求學生深入學習中國市場。」

不看重課程排名

提起商學院,外界最喜歡用商學院MBA(工商管理碩士)和EMBA(行政人員工商管理碩士)課程的排名作比較,前年國際知名的芝加哥大學布斯商學院(Chigago Booth)宣布進軍香港開設分校,而科大的Kellogg-HKUST EMBA課程就曾六度位列全球一哥,陳家樂直言並不看重排名高低,而是重視課程是否適合學生。「中大商學院是亞洲第一所開辦MBA和EMBA課程的商學院,明年就是MBA課程五十周年,校友網絡很龐大,我們會善用這些優勢。我們MBA與清華大學和上海國家會計學院合作的項目,一直很出色。EMBA課程則與港大、科大跟外國大學合辦不同,一直獨辦,一直做得好好,亦一直檢視課程的更新。」

他透露不少醫生、工程師都有修讀中大的MBA課程,「每個行業都需要管理人才,都需要有融資、會計、風險管理、市場推廣的知識,這些都是中大商學院可以提供的。」

如願在「百萬大道」參加畢業禮

從中大畢業二十多年後強勢「回歸」擔任商學院院長,陳家樂直言校園變化不少,新樓、新工程很多,商學院亦位處港鐵大學站外的鄭裕彤樓,陳家樂亦毋須再「上山」返學,「其實回來後一直很忙,我還未有機會回去以前讀書時的聯合書院看看。」

不過回到中大,陳家樂也補償了一個二十多年前的遺憾。原來當年陳家樂在中大畢業後,就馬上到了美國俄亥俄州大學讀書,錯過了十一月舉行的畢業禮,「去年十一月上任剛好就是畢業禮的時間,我終於在二十多年後,在中大的百萬大道『完成』畢業禮,雖然是穿上教授袍而不是學士袍。」

除了在大學教學和研究,陳家樂還擔任過不少公職,如香港特區人力資源發展(金融服務)顧問委員會委員、港交所風險管理委員會委員,今年亦擔任上市公司廣發證券的獨立非執行董事。

CUHK Professor Dennis Lo Received International Honour for Pioneering Research in Personalized Medicine

Professor Dennis Lo Yuk Ming from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Fellow of S.H. Ho College, was presented with the Pioneer Award at the Personalized Medicine World Conference 2015, for his pioneering research and remarkable contributions to personalized medicine.

Professor Dennis Lo Yuk Ming, Associate Dean (Research); Chairman of the Department of Chemical Pathology, Faculty of Medicine; and Director of the Li Ka Shing Institute of Health Sciences at CUHK, was the first to discover the presence of cell-free fetal DNA in the plasma of pregnant women. The groundbreaking findings opened up opportunities for non-invasive prenatal testing. Recently, Professor Lo and his research team have achieved another major breakthrough in applying DNA sequencing techniques to cancer detection. This innovative liquid biopsy technology aims to detect cancer-associated mutations and other alterations in blood through genome-wide DNA sequencing, contributing towards early stage cancer diagnosis and hence prompt treatment.

Professor Lo remarked, ‘Given the rapid development of genomics technology, personalized medicine is being a global development in healthcare. I would like to thank my research team and collaborators for their strong support over the years. We will further push forward the technology envelope to provide safe and timely diagnostic solutions for prenatal diagnosis and cancer detection.’

Professor Lo discovered the presence of cell-free fetal DNA in the plasma of pregnant women in 1997. The remarkable findings marked a milestone in genetic medicine. Professor Lo then characterized the fundamental parameters of this phenomenon and developed a number of core technologies that brought non-invasive prenatal diagnosis into reality. In 2011, he introduced a non-invasive prenatal diagnosis for Down syndrome with over 99% accuracy. Pregnant women are only required to take a blood test after 10 weeks of pregnancy, greatly reducing the risk of miscarriage compared to conventional invasive testing methods such as amniocentesis. The technology is now widely used in China, the United States, Europe, totalling over 60 countries, representing one of the most rapidly developing areas of molecular testing. To date, it has been estimated that over a million pregnant women have benefited from this technology.

Professor Lo’s innovative and remarkable research in non-invasive prenatal testing has had a far-reaching impact in the medical and scientific fields. Over the years, he has been honoured with numerous international awards including the King Faisal International Prize for Medicine in 2014, election to the Royal Society and election as a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Sciences.

What is Personalized Medicine?

The human genome contains approximately 6 billion DNA bases (with half inherited from each parent) which have a great impact on our health including genomic alterations that would lead to cancer, adverse reactions to drugs, and susceptibility to diseases, etc. Personalized medicine enables physicians to provide patients with customised monitoring and treatment solutions based on their unique situations reflected from DNA sequencing. Such developments allow the timely institution of the most beneficial management plans for a particular patient.

About The Personalized Medicine World Conference and the Pioneer Award

The Personalized Medicine World Conference is an annual event where personalized medicine experts around the world share their innovative researches and insights on future development. The Pioneer Award is given to a rare individual who has presaged the present day excitement regarding personalized medicine with major advances in the field, even at a time when less-evolved technology and less encouragement from peers existed. Last year’s recipient of the award was Prof. Yuet Wai Kan, renowned expert and leader in genetics research. Professor Lo was presented with the award at the conference recently held in Silicon Valley.

Prof. Dennis Lo – ‘Genomic Snapshots in Utero’

01/03/2014

“By carefully sequencing the maternal plasma DNA, Professor Lo’s team has been able to reveal the genome-wide genetic and mutational profile of the fetus. Their findings were published as the cover story in the prestigious interdisciplinary biomedical journal, Science Translational Medicine. The implication of this ground-breaking research is that by analysing a blood sample from the pregnant woman the entire genome of the fetus can be deduced and screened for many possible genetic disorders in one go.”
