Congratulations to Dr Gilman Siu Kit-hang, Associate Professor at PolyU’s Department of Health Technology and Informatics (HTI), for winning the Outstanding PolyU Young Alumni Award 2022 in Scholarly Achievement! The different categories of the Outstanding PolyU Alumni Award (OPAA) aim to honour outstanding graduates of PolyU and its forerunning institutions for their remarkable achievements and contributions to the community and their alma mater. Dr Siu is one of the eight recipients of OPAA in 2022. Earlier, he was bestowed with the Outstanding Young Alumni Award in Scholarly Achievement of PolyU Faculty of Health and Social Sciences 2022. Dr Siu graduated with a Higher Diploma in Biomedical Science and a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biomedical Science (first class) from PolyU in 2004 and in 2006, respectively. He has been actively engaged in research related to different areas of microbial genomics for more than 15 years. Dr Siu has published more than 50 peer-reviewed research papers in high-impact academic journals, including Lancet Respiratory Medicine and Clinical Chemistry. His publications have been cited more than 1,500 times in some 1,000 articles. In addition, Dr Siu has secured more than HK$40million in external research grant funding in the past five years. His research efforts have greatly increased the accuracy and efficiency of the diagnosis of infectious diseases, including COVID-19. During the pandemic, his rapid sequencing technique has been crucial in identifying and stopping local transmission chains of the virus and which also earned him an Outstanding Project Team on COVID-19 Research Award from Hong Kong’s Food and Health Bureau in 2021. Also in 2021, PolyU recognised Dr Siu’s achievements and potential by appointing him as the University’s inaugural Limin Endowed Young Scholar in Medical Laboratory Science.
