ICTS organized an “ICTS Get Together Gathering” on 9 November 2021 at Multi-purpose Hall, Room 501, Fong Shu Chuen Library, HKBU. ICTS would like to take this opportunity to invite all young researchers from various departments in the Faculty of Science who are sitting in ICTS to this event to get to know each other, hoping that this close environment and exchange can stimulate some research ideas. In fact there should be many opportunities for scientific discussions, and enhancement of interdisciplinary collaborations, which is what ICTS set out to do. Their project supervisors were invited too to share with us the projects they are working on. The event was a great success and it was agreed that more similar events and gatherings should be held regularly to foster academic exchange and build up networks.

ICTS organized a retreat on 29 May 2021 (Saturday) in Sai Kung, Hong Kong. The retreat targeted the faculty members from the Faculty of Science, Hong Kong Baptist University. We also had the pleasure to invite Prof Yuan Yao from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The focus of the retreat was on streamlining collaboration between experimental and theory groups. The retreat kicked off with a group discussion, using a recent collaborative project on rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as an example. Cellular energy metabolism and its relation to disease development and treatment was also discussed. The departments in the Faculty have accumulated quite a bit of expertise in various areas such as Big data/AI group, but deep collaboration yet needs to be developed. ICTS can serve as a platform to foster such activities and is looking forward to future projects together.
