Worlds Top 2 Scientists by Stanford University

Prof. Wong Ka-hing and his team at FSN have developed Cs4-selenium nanocomposites (Cs4-SeNPs) to manage postmenopausal osteoporosis. Selenium is crucial for bone health and metabolism, and with its well-characterized structure and high stability, Cs4-SeNPs showed promising results in inducing proliferation, differentiation, and mineralization in pre-osteoblast cells. In animal studies, Cs4-SeNPs demonstrated bone protective effects against OVX-in
