Prof. Wong Kwok-yin, Vice President (Education), Chair Professor of Chemical Technology and Director of the State Key Laboratory of Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery at PolyU, and Prof. Thomas Leung Yun-chung, Lo Ka Chung Charitable Foundation Professor in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Professor of Department of Applied Biology and Chemical Technology, gave an interview with RTHK TV programme "I&T New Era" to introduce the laboratory’s journey of developing new drugs to cure cancer.
According to Prof. Wong, they have three to four new drugs under development in the clinical trial stage in the US, China and Hong Kong currently, and hopefully may enter the third stage of trial soon.
Prof. Leung said the development process has been taken forward with the help of the state-of-the-art equipment. Besides, knowledge transfer is also critical in developing new drugs, as it may take decades to develop a new drug, therefore young scientists are needed to take up the baton.
