A cheque presentation ceremony was held on May 11, 2018 to mark the establishment of Norman and Cecilia Yip Professorship in Bioinorganic Chemistry, at the historic and elegant Hung Hing Ying Building.

The Norman and Cecilia Yip Professorship in Bioinorganic Chemistry supports Professor Sun Hongzhe to continue his groundbreaking research in biological chemistry. The Endowed Professorship (EP) also serves as important resource for HKU Faculty of Science to excel in research, which creates a ripple effect on our daily lives as mentioned by Professor Paul Tam.

“The Endowed Professorship just comes at an opportune time to symbolise a paramount start of our anniversary fund,” said Professor Evans, Dean of Science. Professor Evans also expressed his vision of HKU Science’s testament in research leadership, scaling new heights and being visible on the world map.
