Research Strengths and Projects
The research reputation of the School of Science is built upon the strengths of its faculty members, who are renowned experts in multiple fields of science working in world-class research facilities.
Our neuroscience study combines biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, physiology, human genetics, “omics” studies, and stem cell biology to advance understanding of brain functions in health and disease.
Materials Chemistry
Our research on materials chemistry covers the study of inorganic and hybrid materials, nanomaterials, polymeric AIE and organic electronic materials.
Scientific Computing and Data Science
Scientific computing and data science are two prevailing research areas strongly advocated and focused for development in the Department of Mathematics.
Wave Functional Materials
Metamaterials and photonic crystals are designed structures with properties and material parameters that go beyond those given by natural or composite materials.
Ocean Science and Technology
The Department of Ocean Science emphasizes on building multi- and cross-disciplinary research programs in Ocean Science and Technology.
Research Units
The world-class research conducted in the School is supported by the work of our research units. Well-equipped with the latest technologies, these units enable our faculty to stay at the forefront of their fields.

Interdisciplinary Collaboration
To foster an environment that encourages and facilitates interdisciplinary research collaborations, the School has identified a number of areas where it can better leverage and integrate its strengths.
Knowledge Transfer
Throughout the years, the School of Science has built a culture of Knowledge Transfer to advance societal impact.
