We build the publications from HKU and external sources automatically. If you do not see your publications here, please note:
  • We receive data from HKU's Research Output System (ROS), after you or your people enter data there. If you have entered, or are going to enter data into ROS, we do not want to enter them manually into the Hub, as it will create duplicates. When entering data into ROS, please remember to include the DOI or ISBN. It will help us match on outside sources, and dedup.
  • If you are NOT going to enter publication data into ROS, or if you have publications from before your time at HKU, please put them into an EndNote file and send to us, hub@lib.hku.hk. It will allow us to enter in batch. HKU has a site license for EndNote. You may google for "endnote@hk". HKU Libraries can instruct on Endnote, either in class or one on one, http://lib.hku.hk/general/help.html
  • You may log into your ResearcherPage with your HKU Portal, and use the "Manage Publications" entry on the green left side menu, to unlink publications from your ResearcherPage, or, select a few to appear in a new box, "Selected Publications".
  • Confused? Please write to hub@lib.hku.hk.

     Biography

    Yuen Kwok-yung (traditional Chinese: ), Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (Basic Medicine and Health) and Silver Bauhinea Star Awardee of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China.  He is also Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians(Lond, Edin), Surgeons(Glas) and Pathologists(UK). In the outbreak of avian influenza virus H5N1 in 1997 in Hong Kong, Professor Yuen was the first to report in Lancet about the unusual clinical severity and high mortality of infected patients which could be identified by the in-house designed molecular test at his laboratory.  During the outbreak of SARS in 2003, he led his team in the discovery of the SARS coronavirus. Subsequently he found the natural reservoir of SARS coronavirus like virus in Chinese horseshoe bat. His success in finding novel microbes is exemplified by the discovery of more than 40 viruses, 10 bacteria, 2 fungi and 2 protozoa in human and animals. His 600 publications with over 15,000 citations are mainly related to the research of novel microbes or emerging infectious disease agents
