Inauguration ceremony of 'JC STEM Lab of ChemProbes'
"Hong Kong Baptist University has received a generous donation of HK$10 million from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust to support the establishment of the “JC STEM Lab of ChemProbes”. An Inauguration Ceremony of JC STEM Lab of ChemProbes was held on 16 May 2023, attracting over 170 guests, including community leaders, friends of the University, faculty members and students."
"The “JC STEM Lab of ChemProbes” will focus on the development of rare-earth-based molecular probes as bio-imaging agents for use in optical imaging for pre-clinical cellular and tissue studies. The probes could potentially be widely utilised in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and in various diagnostic and optical imaging protocols. It is hoped that they will eventually be translated for use in human applications in collaboration with partners in academia and industry. "
