Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine of unknown aetiology, characterized by a lateral curvature and vertebral rotation.
  Investigating the potential psychological impact of early screening and long-term monitoring for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis among patients and caregivers
  Dr K Kwan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine. The commonest form, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) develops in puberty and may progress during adolescence.

Clinical neural engineering is a promising research field to apply various advanced engineering solutions in clinical application.
  Etiology, assessment and treatment of scoliosis
  Prof K Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can be present in 3-4% of the population. If left untreated, some can progress to lead to back pain, shortness of breath and severe deformities.
