tPA-nanorobots for stroke treatment featuring rapid recanalization and ultra-low drug dose

A research team led by Professor Zhang Li of the Faculty of Engineering and Professor Thomas Leung Wai-hong, Professor Simon Yu Chun-ho, Professor Bonaventure Ip Yiu-Ming, and Professor Tony Chan Kai-fung of the Faculty of Medicine of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) have collaboratively developed tPA-modified magnetic nanorobots (tPA-nanorobots) that can achieve rapid elimination of blood clots for stroke treatment.

Gold nanoparticles for treating chronic kidney diseases

Prolonged kidney fibrosis can lead to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and ultimately kidney failure, which requires dialysis or transplantation. A research team led by Professor Jonathan Choi Chung-hang, Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK)’s Faculty of Engineering, has developed a folic-acid conjugated gold nanoparticle that may offer a safe, effective treatment for kidney fibrosis.

Harnessing light to mechanically probe our cells’ power plants

Just like our sense of touch allows us to feel a gentle hug, the tiny cells in our bodies also respond to physical forces. This response is crucial for our bodies to function properly, and understanding it can unlock secrets of how diseases develop, guiding us towards new treatments....The Duan Lab from Biomedical Engineering has pioneered a groundbreaking way to study these cellular power plants, using a technique inspired by the principles of optogenetics, which is a method that uses light to control cells.
