A research team from the School of Medicine and Engineering of CUHK has developed a "micro-robot" composed of human stem cells. As long as it is combined with an endoscope and a magnetic navigation system, it can quickly "walk" in the human body and penetrate into the past. Organs and ducts that cannot be reached by the mirror, such as the bile duct, pancreatic duct, and prostate, will help diagnose and treat diseases.

Shen Zuyao, one of the research team members and the Emeritus Chair Professor of CUHK, said that micro-robots can enter a pipe that is only one millimeter long. "You can enter places where you can’t see or treat you before!"

Professor Shen Zuyao, Emeritus Chair Professor of CUHK, Senior Vice President (Health and Life Sciences) of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and Dean of Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, said that the technology developed this time can extend the coverage of endoscopy to bile ducts, pancreatic ducts, and bronchi. Even the smaller branches of the urinary system, such as the renal calyx and prostate, "this time is a breakthrough. You can go to places you didn't see or treat before!"
