Academics from PolyU shared the stage with leading minds in the region’s healthcare sector at the Asia Summit on Global Health held in Hong Kong last month.


The Summit, co-organised by the HKSAR Government and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, drew over 2,500 participants from 40 countries and regions.


Prof. Wing-tak Wong, Deputy President and Provost of PolyU, led a distinguished panel of health innovators, business leaders and financial service professionals to share their insights on the latest developments in the Greater Bay Area’s emerging bio-medical ecosystem. They also discussed how industry players can leverage Hong Kong as a gateway to tap into the region’s great potential.


In a separate session, leading scholars from PolyU’s School of Optometry, together with their counterparts at InnoHK’s Centre for Eye and Vision Research (CEVR), discussed recent ground-breaking research and innovations in myopia and retinal degenerative disease. CEVR is a joint initiative of PolyU and the University of Waterloo, Canada.


The Summit’s exhibition zone also showcased PolyU’s research excellence in healthcare, life sciences, AI innovations and material applications.
