HKBU Chemistry scholar wins prize in Natural Sciences from Ministry of Education
浸大化學系教授奪國家教育部自然科學獎


Professor Chan Wing-hong is dedicated to research into enhancing real samples analysis and living cell imaging.
陳永康教授致力研究創新的檢測生物分析科學應用

Professor Chan Wing-hong of the Department of Chemistry, together with research team members from Hunan University and Peking University, was granted the "First Class Natural Sciences Award" in the 2011 Excellent Science Research Achievement Award for Higher Institutions. The Award was conferred by the Ministry of Education, China at an Award Conferment Ceremony held in Hong Kong yesterday (29 March).

Under the collaborative project, titled "New Strategies for Fluorescent Probe Design and Signal Transduction", the team successfully developed an array of highly selective and sensitive fluorescent probes for the novel detection of biologically relevant cations, amino acids and DNA based on rational molecular design and sound photo-chemical principles. The technology can be applied to real sample analysis and living cell imaging. 

Led by Professor Yang Ronghua, Hunan University, members include Professor Tan Weihong, Dr. Na Shao, Dr. Li Jishan from Hunan University, Professor Li Keon from Peking University, and Professor Chan Wing-hong from HKBU.

Expressing his delight at receiving the Award, Professor Chan said, “It was my pleasure to have participated in this research project, through which I worked with Professor Yang, whom I have collaborated for more than 10 years. I am also pleased to see the great achievements of the younger scholars on the Mainland and the high standard of research technology in China.”
 



化學系陳永康教授參與由湖南大學和北京大學學者所組成的研究團隊,獲得國家教育部頒發2011年高等學校科學研究優秀成就獎(科學技術)中的「自然科學一等獎」榮譽,頒獎典禮於昨日(三月二十九日)在港舉行。

 

研究項目名為「熒光傳感探針設計與信號傳導新策略研究」,旨在透過熒光化學及能通過分子識別的「傳感探針」,檢測生物相關的陽離子、氨基酸和脫氧核酸等。這項創新的檢測技術,可用於真實樣品和活細胞成像的應用上,是現今分析科學的一項核心技術。

 

項目由湖南大學楊榮華教授主持,協作者包括湖南大學譚蔚泓教授、邵娜博士、李繼山博士、北京大學李克安教授及浸會大學陳永康教授。

 

陳教授對獲得這個重要的國家獎項表示欣喜,他說:「我很高興透過與團隊中的楊榮華教授十多年來的緊密合作,而取得豐碩的成果,並獲得同行肯定。我看到近年內地的青年學者在科學研究中取得了很大的進步,我亦很欣然見到內地大學的研究設施都已達到了很完備的水平。」
