SIGHT FYP Team Wins President's Cup Gold Award
Congratulations to the CSE-SIGHT FYP Team that took home the Gold Award at the 2017 HKUST President's Cup, with their project "Early Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) by Smartphone App". The team members are Laiman Evan Roberto, Stanza Tan Erez Pablo and Wijaya Reynaldi Octavianus, and the project is co-supervised by Prof. Pedro Sander (CSE) and Prof. Ying Chau. As with most SIGHT projects, this one has a long history and a long list of people to whom we owe our gratitude. First, our thanks to Helen Keller International (HKI) Indonesia, especially Dr. Satya, who really just started this project with us, and referred us to our current partner Gadjah Mada University. Our thanks also go to the student team that started this project, Felicia Agatha, Charlotte Chung, Wan Jia, Benjamin Lai; who were coached ably by our TA Sen Zhang.

EMRS TEAM WINS RICE 360 COMPETITION
Our eMRS Team won FIRST PRIZE in the 2016 Rice Undergraduate Global Health Technologies Design Competition in Houston, TX! Great work by our SIGHT Student Leaders, Kevin, Michelle Lee, Sandra Sobańska, Melody Chung and Nadiya Yudiana. We would be remiss to not mention that the whole eMRS (Electronic Health Record System) project is a long and continuous endeavor with different teams involved. The first team to identify and start this project consists of Stephen Ng, Sathish Raghuraman, Kale Tsang and Mandy, which was picked up by the capable hands of Lance Cheung, Alton Lee, Jenny Kang and Samson Chan, as well as the current SIGHT Student Leaders Kevin, Michelle Lee and Sandra Sobańska. This year the eMRS project is continued with the EasyMed (Electronic Health Record/EHR) team, with the CSE FYP coding team led by Louis Tsai, John Choi, Ricky Lo and Ron Ip, and the implementation team of Anastasia Chrysilla, Gracia Monica, Bonnie Park and Jonathan Yang. Along the way many faculty and staff advisers guided our teams along the way whom we are very grateful for, including Prof. Shanghai Song (ECE) and Prof. Frederick H. Lochovsky (ECE) when it all first started; Teaching Associate Peter Chung (CSE) that brought the eMRS to Cambodia; and Prof. Shing Chi Cheung heading the current coders for the EasyMed team! With SIGHT there is always the teaching team, under the helm of Prof. Ying Chau are Teaching Associate Malinda Abeynayake and Project Assistant Joel Yu, as well as past Teaching Associates Dr. Thilina Weerasinghe and Dr. Yuki Zhong. Last but not least, our gratitude to the One-2-One Charitable Trust, for making this project possible, successful and meaningful.
