  Adipose tissue remodelling in obesity and type 2 diabetes
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Due to the changes in lifestyle and environment, the incidence of obesity has rapidly increased over the last two decades.
  Investigating the pathogenesis of pancreatic beta cell dysfunction in type 2 diabetes
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Normal glucose levels is tightly controlled by the actions and secretion of insulin. After a meal, pancreatic β-cells secrete insulin, which not only promotes glucose uptake in skeletal muscle and adipose tissues but also inhibits glucose production in the liver.
  Department of Health Technology and Informatics

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Health Technology and Informatics welcomes applications from high potential candidates with academic excellence, research ability and potential, and good communication, interpersonal and leadership abilities for full-time PhD study in Hong Kong through the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS) 2020/21.
  Characterization of new biomarkers for precision management of metabolic diseases
  Prof A Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bariatric surgery is one of the most efficient ways in reducing the incidence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and related mortality in obese individuals compared with the conventional intensive medical treatment.
  Development of new anti-obese strategies by conversion of white fat to brown fat
  Prof A Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In contrast to white adipose tissue (WAT) that stores energy, brown adipose tissue (BAT) is specialized for energy dissipation and considered as a potential weapon to combat obesity by uncoupling mitochondrial respiratory chain and ATP synthesis.
  Diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in lung cancer
