Complex microbial communities, e.g., biofilms residing in our oral cavity, have recognized clinical significance, as they are typically the main cause for infections. Diamond nanoparticles, namely, nanodiamonds (NDs) have been demonstrated to work as an effective antibacterial agent against planktonic cells (free-floating state) due to their many promising physico-chemical properties. However, little is known about the behaviors of NDs against biofilms (sessile state).
Engineering for Better Living
Exhibition period: 28th December 2021 to 30th July 2022
Engineering for Better Living is the theme of the inaugural exhibition. Twelve cutting-edge engineering research projects led by Professors in the Faculty of Engineering are exhibited in the Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing Two. These projects address both local and global situations and are categorized into topics of InnoHK, COVID-19, Emerging Technology and Gerontology respectively. From the videos and displays, visitors will be equipped with knowledge of rationales underlying these projects and their methodologies to achieve the goal of creating a better living environment. Further through interactive prototypes and functional exhibits, visitors will get even more detailed knowledge about how these research ideas have been translated into reality.
