In keeping with the tradition of promoting research in the Department of Medicine, the 24th Medical Research Conference (MRC) was held on January 19, 2019, chaired by Dr Yiu Kai-hang. This year, the distinguished researchers were invited to give plenary lectures included Professor Ketan Patel of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology at the University of Cambridge, UK; Professor Ian Wong Chi-kei of Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacy at HKUMed; and Professor Dudley Pennell of the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London, UK.
The MRC has provided researchers and students with a valuable venue for the exchange and development of ideas as well as an opportunity, especially for junior members, to present their work. The conference was attended by an estimated 200 participants including physicians, scientists, researchers and medical students. This year we saw many high standard oral and poster papers from members of the Department and the Best Abstract Awards were given to those with outstanding performances in their presentations.
