Summary

Positioned at the crossroads of Asia and the West, both geographically and culturally, Hong Kong is taking advantage of its auspicious place in Asia by reimagining itself not just as a financial and tourism center, but also as a research and biotechnology hub. This sponsored feature will provide the reader with an update on the state of scientific research in the region and a glimpse into the powerful engine that is driving progress there, from basic research to the commercialization of therapeutics and medical devices.
