Faculty of Science, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) - Faculty Research Day

Faculty Research Day






The Faculty’s annual research day will be held on Saturday, 22 May 2021 in hybrid mode. The theme of Research Day this year would be “Advancing Science through Interdisciplinary and Multidisciplinary Research and Collaboration”. It is a great honour for the Faculty to invite Nobel Laureate, Prof. Randy Schekman from the University of California at Berkeley to join the Research Day this year and share his insight on collaboration and openness in basic science and research publication. Another highlight of this year’s Research Day is the “Sharing on Collaborative Research Fund (CRF)”. We hope that Research Day 2021 can serve as a platform for researchers to exchange new research ideas and to encourage collaborative research across different disciplines. Please REGISTER HERE to join the symposium.
