Prof Changsong ZHOU awarded RGC Senior Research Fellow Scheme (SRFS) Grants 2023/24
Prof. Changsong ZHOU, Head and Professor of the Department of Physics, has been conferred the title “RGC Senior Research Fellow” in the inaugural Research Grants Council (RGC) Senior Research Fellow Scheme (SRFS). HKBU will receive a fellowship grant of around HK$7.8 million over a period of 60 months.
The RGC SRFS was introduced to provide sustained support to exceptionally outstanding academics to facilitate their research and promote research excellence. The ten SRFS awardees were selected for their research capability, contribution and potential impact of the proposed research project, proven research track record, leadership quality and vision in the chosen area of research. Prof. Zhou is one of the two SRFS awardees from the Faculty of Science. His project aims to build a new theoretical framework based on large-scale brain network model to identify effective strategies for modulating neurocognition and treating neuropsychiatric disorders, test the strategies in data-driven computational models of individual brain and validate in neuroimaging experiments. The selection panel was of the view that the proposed project would have translational value especially in a clinical setting.
