The Poster Presentation of HKU Science Undergraduate Research (SRF/ORF/URFP) was conducted on October 12, 2023.




This year, a total of 88 SRF/ORF/URFP participants joined the Poster Presentation to share their research findings with our professors and fellow students. All participants and their projects were divided into five groups based on their fields of research, including Group A&B - Quantitative Reasoning (Mathematics & Statistics and Actuarial Science); Group C - The Physical World (Chemistry); Group D - The Physical World (Physics and Earth Sciences); Group E - Life and Living (Biological Sciences); and Group F - Life and Living (Biochemistry). A Selection Panel members of Science Teachers, the SRF and ORF participants, and URFP summer research internship awardees were invited to evaluate their fellows’ posters design, content and presentation, selecting the best presenter from each group. The five best presenters were:
