The nurturing of curiosity has often being hailed as the purpose of education, yet in reality, most education systems have been killing it - instead of building it. Seeing the irony, Dr. Lam set out to discover a new way of inspiring curiosity, in such a way, to make learning fun again.

Dr Lam is a researcher in the field of Biology, primarily studying dynamic cellular behaviour in live cells. Accredited with a prize of the Roche “Imagining the Future” Award, he has published a multitude of research papers, one of which has been cited more than 100 times and was featured in the Science Magazine in 2007. He earned his doctorate degree at the University of Hong Kong in 1997, studying under the tutelage of Dr Davina Opstelten’s lab. After receiving a Croucher Fellowship in 1998 at the University of Dundee in Scotland, he was fascinated by the structural design of mammalian cells with regards to its relationship with gene expression regulation. Today, he conducts quantitative mass spectrometry of proteins using modern cell imaging techniques and proteomics at the Department of Biology and Chemistry apart from being an assistant professor at CityU.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
