Li Ka Shing Institute of Health Sciences

The establishment of the Li Ka Shing Institute of Health Sciences (LiHS) was an initiative undertaken by the Faculty of Medicine of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and realised by the generous donation from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, with the aim to provide an environment conducive to cutting-edge scientific research and technological innovations in the life sciences.

The Institute was opened in September 2007 and is housed inside the 11-storey Li Ka Shing Medical Sciences Building. As of February 2013, there were approximately 300 research personnel working in the Building. Research areas of the Institute include the clinical applications of human and microbial genomics, cancer research, digestive diseases, inflammatory diseases, diabetes and obesity, and stem cells and tissue regeneration.
