<![CDATA[NCKU College of Medicine Launches Artificial Intelligence-Virtual Reality Classroom]]> On June 24th, the NCKU College of Medicine unveiled southern Taiwan’s very first virtual reality (VR) classroom. The purpose of the classroom is to use high technology to actively create an immersive teaching experience as well as improve on teaching and learning effectiveness. Human anatomy is a course that students of all departments of the medical school need to take, so this course will be given priority for VR classroom installation. Teachers and students will also be encouraged to make VR lesson plans. The College of Medicine also plans to collaborate with science and engineering departments at NCKU in the future to develop more realistic interactive VR teaching materials by leveraging artificial intelligence, developing precision medicine, and cultivating a new generation of medical talent.

<![CDATA[Professor Jiunn-Der Liao’s Virus Rapid Screening Test Selected for Ministry of Science Technology’s Epidemic Prevention Technology Development Program]]> COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) has spread across the entire globe, and many countries are actively working to develop rapid screening techniques. Taking a material science and engineering approach, Professor Jiunn-Der Liao from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) and his team are developing nanoscale trap-based capture technology to catch antigen particles even if there is just one particle present. The test would relieve the need for repetitive nucleic acid or other serologic testing, and be able to detect the presence of the target virus simply by analyzing the chemical composition of the viral envelope. Coupled target virus with hot-spot test cluster has also been developed by Prof. Liao’s team, the viral signals can be further identified to enable detection within a minute. This screening technology was selected to be part of the Ministry of Science and Technology’s (MoST) development project for epidemic prevention technologies, and will be applied towards developing COVID-19 test pieces. The technology is expected to contribute to ongoing efforts in epidemic prevention.

<![CDATA[Create a Pathway for the Wind: Prof. Tzu-Ping Lin’s solution to the Urban Heat Island Effect]]> Dense concentrations of buildings in cities lead to heat retention even at night and cause an accumulation of heat in the morning. The “urban heat island effect” (UHI effect) makes cities like stew pots. With the support of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Tzu-Ping Lin, Distinguished Professor in the Department of Architecture, NCKU, leads an international interdisciplinary team dedicated to reducing the UHI effect. Prof. Lin’s team mapped high-resolution climate graphs of the major urban areas in Taiwan in Taipei, New Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, and Kaohsiung. These climate graphs provide precise heat spots in these cities. The team issued an essential solution to the UHI effect: Create a pathway for the wind. Based on this research, the team will cooperate with local and central governments to implement the research results through practical policies.

For global students who cannot continue their studies due to the epidemic situation, NCKU launched the "Noah’s Plan" with long-term degree programs, short-term courses and research participation possibilities, allowing students to study in Taiwan without interruption. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, NCKU has successfully helped exchange students from Spain, Taiwanese students returning from France and the United States to continue their study, do research and use academic resources in NCKU campuses.

For decades, NCKU chair professor Dr. Grace Chu-Fang Lo  has been studying the white spot syndrome virus (WSSV), which causes an extremely lethal disease in shrimp. In recent years, she has also been researching acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND). She has thus had a profound impact on global research and practices involving shrimp farming. In recognition of her lifetime contributions, the World Organisation for Animal Health (originally the Office International des Epizooties, OIE ) is presenting her with the 2020 Meritorious Award, thereby making Prof. Lo the first researcher in Taiwan  to receive this honor.

Floating on the ocean, the carcass of a blue whale was stranded on Taitung’s seashore in January, 2020. According to the necropsy, the main structure of this young whale’s skull is severely crushed. Thus, it will be a tough task of making a skeleton specimen in the future.
