LKSF Donates HK$30 Million to CUHK to Upgrade Research Facilities in the Li Ka Shing Institute of Health Sciences

The Li Ka Shing Foundation (LKSF) has announced a donation of HK$30 million to the Faculty of Medicine at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) to upgrade the research facilities in the Li Ka Shing Institute of Health Sciences. 

The enhancement project of the Institute, expected to be completed by the end of 2022, includes optimising the research space to provide 14 additional laboratory benches and 84 bench spaces. At the same time, the new animal facilities not only will triple the murine capacity, but also use individually ventilated cages which would greatly enhance the ability to control cross-animal transmission of infectious agents. 

LKSF Chairman Mr Li Ka-shing remarked, “I have long believed that Hong Kong can play an important role in Asia’s fast evolving life sciences economy and build a catalytic force to our city’s future. But to succeed, it requires Hong Kong’s strongest undertaking to improve R&D environment and investment in our medical and relating fields.”
