How Nobel Prizes Are Won?

The Faculty of Science of the Chinese University of Hong Kong has been dedicated to promoting science to the general public, especially to young people.  In addition to our annual Popular Science Talks, where our faculty members give talks on cutting-edge topics of science, we are pleased to hold a special Popular Science Lecture Series every year on research that has garnered scientists recent Nobel Prizes in Chemistry, in Physics, and in Physiology or Medicine.  By explaining the science behind world-class scientific research, we hope to bring to life the sense of excitement and participation in the progress of science to senior secondary students and the general public.

This year, the Popular Science Special Lecture Series: How Nobel Prizes Are Won will be held on 1 December 2017 (Friday). To participate, please register through the on-line registration platform on or before 28 November 2017 (Tuesday).
