由香港中文大学（深圳）生命与健康科学学院主办，岗宏青年学者发展基金、科比尔卡创新药物开发研究院、深圳市甾体类药物研发重点实验室支持的首届学院学术交流会——LHS Research Day 2021在8月13日成功举行。活动以线上线下模式同时举行，吸引了近200名师生参与。
The very first school-wide scientific forum of School of Life and Health Sciences (LHS), LHS Research Day 2021, was successfully held on 8 August, 2021. Supported by Ganghong Young Scholar Development Fund, Kobilka Institute of Innovative Drug Discovery and Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Steroid Drug Discovery and Development, the forum was hosted by School of Life and Health Sciences of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen. The event was held on-site in Administration Building as well as online simultaneously, which attracted nearly 200 audiences.
Featuring 10 talks and 11 posters by young scholars and students of LHS, the event began with remarks from Dean Prof. Richard Ye, “It's a scientific fair, it's an academic fair, but it's similar to what we have for carnival. It's our research carnival.” Recent research advances in structural biology of hormone receptors and thoughtful insights of drug discovery were shared by Prof. H. Eric Xu, Director of Key Laboratory for Receptor Research at Shanghai Institute of Material Medica, who served as keynote speaker opening this event. “Structural biology is promising, there are still many questions for us to answer.”
10 speakers with different research interests gave inspiring talk presentations. The talks focused on recent advances in four different aspects, computational biology, structural biology, cellular biology and nucleic acids. Accompanied by showcasing the research outcomes, heated discussions between speakers and audience held as an impact on the future of the student researchers involved. “It is the first time I speak in a formal research symposium”, Yezhou Liu, a Year 4 undergraduate student shared, “and I really learnt a lot from senior researchers in the Q&A discussion.”
11 well-designed posters were exhibited outsides the Seminar Hall. Accompanying their posters, each presenter introduced their works in front of the audiences and led discussions of featured research outcomes. “I hope that this event will continue, so that there will be more communications and discussions between research groups, and more academic collaboration and exchanges will be promoted”, said Liping Deng, a postgraduate student of LHS.

To conclude this whole-day event, Dr. Mingyu Liu, the general manager and founding partner of Bioching Capital gave a keynote speech on the transformation of research achievements and innovative enterprises, linking the research outcomes and social needs. “You need to keep a dynamic balance of technical thinking and academic thinking”, “Rather to take technical risks than market risks”.
