Sir John Meurig Thomas, University of Cambridge, UK:

Chi-Ming Che, University of Hong Kong:

My biggest motivation is to convince local young scientists and the scientific community of Hong Kong that it is entirely feasible to develop home-grown, world-leading, and innovative research, even when working in a less favorable environment, and I believe that innovative and creative research is a useful means to build self-confidence and a pillar for the sustainable development of a society.

Stephan A. Sieber, Technical University Munich, Germany:

Guaranteed to make me laugh is watching The Simpsons.


Gautam R. Desiraju, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore:
