RiFood research on TV


In RTHK’s TV programme “Hong Kong Stories: Inventors in Hong Kong”, Dr Wong Ka-hing, Director of the Research Institute for Future Food (RiFood), introduced his work researching food over the years. Dr Wong is known for his breakthrough using the polysaccharide-protein complex extracted from African Tiger Milk mushroom to prepare highly stable selenium nanoparticles that can inhibit the growth of cancer cells in dogs. In PolyU, he has also been active in promoting interdisciplinary collaboration across departments, utilising respective departmental expertise to develop new food-related technologies such as plant-based meat, precision hydroponics and artificial intelligence technologies applied to food, in the hope of using research to address future population growth and the impact of climate change on food through innovation.
