The Laboratory is backed by a strong clinical base, made possible by the support of the Hospital Authority and the Health, Welfare and Food Bureau of the Hong Kong SAR Government. Its strategic location at CUHK promotes the translation of research output into clinical solutions bringing hope to patients. The research focus of the Laboratory will be cancers which are especially threatening to the Guangdong population, such as nasopharyngeal and lung cancers. Capitalizing on the strengths of the Faculty of Medicine, research at the Laboratory spans the major aspects of oncology, from cancer biology, early detection, to novel therapeutics for cancers of high prevalence in Asia. The national standing granted to the Laboratory represents the State’s recognition of the University’s unremittingefforts andacademic excellence inmedical research, while at the same time serves as an important platform for extending its scientific achievements to benefit the wider Chinese community. The State Key Laboratory will further consolidate the University’s presence in the global research arena and anchor its role in spearheading international collaborations in medical research as well as promoting scientific development of the nation.
