Prof. Xia Yin, Assistant Professor and Prof. Zhao Hui, Research Assistant Professor of our School successfully secured grants from the National Natural Science Foundation of China / Research Grants Council (NSFC/RGC) Joint Research Scheme 2012/13, which grossed a total of HK$2.05 million (from the RGC) and RMB￥1.60 million (from the NSFC).
These two projects have accounted for 28.6% out of the seven successful CUHK proposals funded under the NSFC/RGC Joint Research Scheme 2012/13. The two funded proposals are:
- The Role of the BMP Co-receptor Dragon in Kidney Tubular Development and Regeneration - Prof. Xia Yin
- Molecular Mechanism of Notochord Formation Regulated by XBP1 - Prof. Zhao Hui
The grants exemplified the outcome of the commitment and continued hard-work of both Prof. Xia and Prof. Zhao, and at the same time demonstrated our concerted efforts in developing scientific collaboration with mainland institutions.
