Award Citation

Dr. Jiang joined CUHK Biology as an Assistant Professor in 2000 and was promoted as Professor in 2007. Professor Jiang is currently Choh-Ming Li Professor of Life Sciences of School of Life Sciences and Director of RGC-AoE Centre for Organelle Biogenesis and Function, and Centre for Cell and Developmental Biology.

 

Professor Jiang’s research team has been working on the underlying mechanisms of protein transport, organelle biogenesis and function in plants for 21 years at CUHK, and has been internationally recognized as a leading group in the field. Professor Jiang received numerous awards for teaching and research achievements, including CUHK Science Faculty Exemplary Teaching Award 2008, CUHK Research Excellence Award thrice (2006-07, 2009-10 & 2015-16), Croucher Senior Research Fellowship twice (2009-10 & 2015-16), Ministry of Education (MoE) Higher Education Outstanding Scientific Research Output Awards three times (2009, 2013 & 2017), Outstanding Fellow of the Faculty of Science (2013), Choh-Ming Li Professorship of Life Sciences (2014), and more recently the RGC Senior Research Fellow 2021/22. 

 

In the RGC Senior Research Fellow project, we aim to illustrate the nature, identity and functions of distinct tip-vesicles (TVs) of germinating pollen tubes using a combination of cellular and molecular approaches, including the advanced platforms of 3D transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Cryo-electron tomography (ET).
