"Summer Research Fellowship did not only give me knowledge, but also a glimpse at the beauty of scientific research."
“Have you ever imagined yourself as a renowned and erudite scientist who invents things that make our community better? I did when I was small. Being curious to scientific research, my mind was always filled with questions: What is the life of a scientist like? What kinds of research projects are conducted here at HKU? To answer these questions and to realise my childhood dream, I decided to have a taste in research through Summer Research Fellowship (SRF) scheme in the summer of 2017, under the supervision of Dr Chi Bun CHAN at School of Biological Sciences.
Practising is quite a different thing from learning from books. Stepping out of classroom, I encountered countless difficulties at the very first beginning, from handling equipment to experiment design. Research is definitely no easy task and we usually neglect the great efforts devoted behind every incredible discovery. With the inspiring and encouraging atmosphere in Dr CHAN’s lab, I started to dedicate myself to scientific research. It was an incredible learning experience that greatly sparked my interest and curiosity in science.”
