Michelle Sze-To, our Year 2 Bachelor of Public Health student, has been awarded the Innovation and Technology Scholarship 2022, one of the most prestigious academic awards in Hong Kong, offering outstanding undergraduate student opportunities to widen their international exposure via difference opportunities, thereby developing future leaders in innovation and technology.

The Scholarship offers 25 local undergraduates each in science, engineering and health a scholarship worth up to $150,000, allowing them to participate in exchange and attachment programmes overseas or in mainland China’s top universities, as well as mentorship, a service project and an optional local internship programme.

Michelle is passionate about discovering possibilities in preventive medicine for rare genetic disorders, raising awareness and generating change for people living with rare diseases. She plans to attend the International Statistical Genetics Workshop to be held by the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado next summer, to learn about essential knowledge and skills for genetic epidemiology research. She believes this opportunity will prepare her for future research work, such as identifying genetic and environmental etiological factors contributing to genetic diseases.

Michelle said, “I am a member of the CUHK Rare Disease Service Team and had the opportunity to interview and write stories about rare disease patients and their families. It is the compassionate feeling towards them that motivated me to study rare diseases and genetics. The scholarship will be a crucial first step for me to realise my aspiration, and I hope I can contribute my passion and knowledge to tackling rare genetic disorders, and enhance health equity in society.”
