Research at MWLC
MWLC consists of two nodes, one in Hong Kong and one in Stockholm with ten research groups. By combining biology and technology, our aim is to unravel biology and develop leading-edge technologies for advancing reparative medicine with focuses on the nervous system and skin.
The Bioinformatics Platform is a network of bioinformaticians with expertise in single-cell genomics, epigenomics and other next generation sequencing-based methodologies. The three specialists who are based in Hong Kong work with researchers of both MWLC nodes and collaborators at Hong Kong universities on projects requiring bioinformatic analysis.
Collaboration with Local Universities
Collaboration with local universities
Eight outstanding scientists from four universities were appointed as MWLC Associate Members in autumn 2019, who are provided funding support to conduct collaborative projects with MWLC researchers, and / or develop novel research platforms or technologies that promote research in MWLC focus areas.
KI and CUHK develop their collaboration
As from January 2022, the The Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Restorative Medicine is established in the same facilities as MWLC in Hong Kong Science Park. This research collaboration between KI and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is tentatively planned for five years.
