After the scorches and the storms, normal business gradually returns to our campus. New admittees and returnees are welcome alike. The CUHK Newsletter resumes with quiet but renewed excitement. Against the grain of Big Data, we look at the flourishing of minimalism in medical technology. Small is truly beautiful in the art of MIS (minimal invasive surgery), a horizon opened up by the efforts of CUHK members in the past quarter of a century. We welcome back ‘Tech Talks’ from last season, only this time instead of our staff writers the articles are penned by none other than the head of information technology on campus. Nothing touches us more squarely and intimately than things like the common flu or a Panadol tablet. Like information technology, health care is another ubiquitous facet of modern life. The new column ‘Wealth In Health’ will hopefully keep the readers curious and informed of what goes on under their skin. Always last but never least, this issue’s ‘Viva Voce’ features a home-grown doctor who is also a pianist and a writer. Easily mistaken as a Victorian, our pianist-physician, Dr. William Ng ( right ), finds inspiration for his music in the practice of medicine, and vice versa. 目錄 CONTENTS 2 特寫 Feature 耕耘四分一世紀: 中大微創手術眾口稱譽 A Quarter Century of Trailblazing: CUHK’s applauded minimally invasive surgery 4 . . . 校園消息 Campus News 6 到任同仁 Newly Onboard 8 宣布事項 Announcements 9 字裏高科 Tech Talks 9 寶健保健 Wealth In Health 10 口談實錄 Viva Voce . . .
