Today (Saturday), I went to Hong Kong Science and Technology Park and found Stem Cell Knowledge Exchange Exhibition organized by Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Consortium (SCRMC), The University of Hong Kong. It is the first time exhibition in stem cell for secondary student in Hong Kong.
The Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Consortium (SCRMC) in the LKS Faculty of Medicine at HKU takes a multi-disciplinary approach by broadly integrating various existing unique strengths at HKU, novel medical concepts and state-of-the-art facilities to strategically focus on topics from basic stem cell biology to translational bench-to-bedside regenerative medicine. SCRMC was officially established in June 2010 with funding support from the LKS Faculty of Medicine, HKU and private donations.
Then I visited their exhibition which presented by secondary school students through their project about stem cell.
They had Facebook for stem cell (see reference).
Student prepared game to question about stem cell ethics arguments. Embryonic Stem Cell was deemed to be controversial as it involved the development of Embryos.
Prof. Ronald Li (Director of SCRMC) discussed with students about their topics.
The other topic about Stem Cell Cosmetology was presented but I was afraid nobody dared to try it.
Another team of student introduced the In-vitro meat which was the manufacturing of meat products through stem cell technology. They said the production of in-vitro meat without causing any pain to animals and it compromised the concern on animal rights while fulfilling human's eating habits.
After the award presentation, some student took a photo with Prof. Ronald Li for memory.
I was happy to met many secondary school students who were going to develop their knowledge in stem cell technology.
