Press Release: Professor Ying Shing Chan, Dr Lee Wei Lim and CityU researchers jointly discover non-invasive stimulation of the eye for depression and dementia

Press Release: Professor Ying Shing Chan, Dr Lee Wei Lim and CityU researchers jointly discover non-invasive stimulation of the eye for depression and dementia

A joint research team of Professor Ying Shing Chan, Dr Lee Wei Lim and City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has discovered that the electrical stimulation of the eye surface can alleviate depression-like symptoms and improve cognitive function in animal models. These significant findings were recently published in Brain Stimulation and the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences.

Press Release: HKUMed-QMUL research team identify biomechanical and molecular signals that trigger early progression of atherosclerosis

A joint research team at LKS Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong (HKUMed) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) has discovered the molecular mechanisms of how pathological condition-mimicking mechanical stimuli lead to the early progression of atherosclerosis, a leading cause of vascular disease worldwide. The research findings provide new insights into the mechanosensitive pathway of vascular smooth muscle cell during the initial phase of atherosclerosis and have been recently published in Science Advances.

Press Release: Dr Martin Cheung and his team discover new molecular mechanism  in promoting melanoma angiogenesis and metastasis, paving the way for new therapeutic opportunities

Press Release: Dr Martin Cheung and his team discover new molecular mechanism in promoting melanoma angiogenesis and metastasis, paving the way for new therapeutic opportunities

Dr Martin Cheung and his team have discovered a new molecular pathway to govern melanoma angiogenesis and metastasis. The findings provide new insights into how melanoma undergoes metastasis and progression through secretion of pro-angiogenic factor to induce angiogenesis that paves the way for new therapeutic opportunities. The new findings are now published in the leading multidisciplinary science journal, Advanced Science.
