Strategic Research Areas
The Faculty is respected globally for its research achievements. We have made significant contributions to the study of the pathogenesis and treatment of cancers, especially those prevalent in Hong Kong and Asia. We are a world leader in the study of liver disease. We have also made notable advances in emerging infectious diseases, spinal surgery, in vitro fertilisation, metabolism and endocrinology, and transplantation and tissue typing.
Over the years we have developed specific core competencies, which we have consolidated into five strategic research areas that build on our strengths and promote collaboration across disciplines.
- Heart, Brain, Hormone and Healthy Ageing
- Infection and Immunology
– Area of Excellence: Control of Pandemic and Inter-Pandemic Influenza
- Public Health
- Reproduction, Development and Growth
