The Biophysical Society of Hong Kong (BPHK): past, present, and future
During the 1990s, the number of government-supported universities in Hong Kong increased from three to seven. This period of growth was accompanied by the recruitment of a large number of active scientists to teach at these institutions. The Biophysical Society of Hong Kong (BPHK) was established in 1994 to represent the biophysics community of Hong Kong under the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB), providing a platform for the Hong Kong biophysicists to interact among themselves and with their international colleagues. A by-law of the society was drafted in the first organizing meeting held on April 16, 1994, and a group of local biophysicists were appointed to organize the 1st BPHK conference, which was held on January 27, 1995. More than 50 people participated in this conference on the beautiful campus of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).
During this conference, the founding officials for the society were elected....
