HKBU Scholars Win Top International Invention Prizes

Announcement by Professor Roland T Chin, President and Vice-Chancellor,

Hong Kong Baptist University

It is with great pleasure that I announce the magnificent results achieved by our HKBU research teams at the 44th International Exhibition of Inventions Geneva held in Switzerland from 13 to 17 April. Our teams won the Grand Prix International Invention Award, three Gold Medals and two Special Mention Medals (http://www.inventions-geneva.ch/en/home-en-gb/31-programs/100-preize-list).

Chair Professor Cheah Kok-wai of Physics: His invention “Scratch Proof Thin Film on Glass” won the Grand Prix Award (the event’s top prize), a Gold Medal in the Industrial Processes Category, and a Special Award For The Invention by the Romanian Association for Nonconventional Technologies.

Professor Ken Yung of Biology: His invention “Autologous Neural Stem Cell Harvest” won a Gold Medal in the Surgery Category as well as an “Award for High Scientific and Technological Level of the Invention” by Romania’s Ministry of National Education and Scientific Research and National Authority for Scientific Research and Innovation.

Professor Cheung Nai-ho of Physics: His invention “Novel Laser Analytical Technology” won a Gold Medal in the Computer Sciences Category.

This is the first time for HKBU to participate in the International Exhibition of Inventions Geneva, the world's largest event of its kind. This year, the organisation awarded 45 inventions among the 1,000 presented from 40 countries. The fact that HKBU won the Grand Prix is not only an honour for HKBU but also for Hong Kong.

My most sincere congratulations go to our three professors, their students and the teams, for their painstaking efforts and persistence in these winning projects! Their inventions are impactful and of benefit to society and mankind. I would also like to thank colleagues of the Knowledge Transfer Office, Faculty of Science as well as the relevant departments for the support they have provided to the research teams whose achievements are very meaningful gifts to commemorate the University’s 60th Anniversary.

浸大專利技術獲國際發明大獎

浸大研究團隊的三項專利技術在4月13至17日於瑞士日內瓦舉行的第44屆日內瓦國際發明展上取得優異成績,包括榮獲最高榮譽大獎、三個界別的金獎和兩項特別獎。

物理系講座教授謝國偉教授發明的超硬抗刮強韌薄膜取得全場最高榮譽大獎、工業製作組金獎和特別優異獎。浸大新發明的薄膜,比目前普遍採用的一般較易刮花的玻璃屏幕更耐用、強韌度更高,使用標準的工業薄膜沉積技術便可鍍在顯示屏上,提供極佳的抗刮保護。有關更多此項發明的詳情,請瀏覽:http://hkbuenews.hkbu.edu.hk/?t=enews_details/974

另一項獲獎技術由生物系翁建霖教授率領的團隊研發的創新「個人化幹細胞療法」,獲頒發醫學組金獎及高科學技術發明獎。技術以帶抗體的磁性納米粒子提取動物的神經幹細胞,經培養成所需的神經球細胞後,再注射入同一動物的神經細胞,度身訂造一個合適患者的治療方案。新方法比傳統胚胎幹細胞的方法較少道德爭議、維持基因穩定性,以及降低患者免疫排斥反應的風險。有關此項技術的詳情,請瀏覽:http://hkbuenews.hkbu.edu.hk/?t=enews_details/344

另一項獲獎技術由物理系張迺豪教授與團隊研究的創新激光技術鑑定藝術品及古董獲得電腦科學組金獎。與傳統的激光顯微探針比較,新技術在高倍顯微鏡下亦見不到明顯破損。新技術更可實時量度藝術品的化學成份,比現時常用的方法靈敏度高100至1,000倍,可應用到追溯該藝術品的來源及鑑證具爭議的文件。有關此項技術的詳情,請瀏覽:http://hkbuenews.hkbu.edu.hk/?t=enews_details/1186
