Gene technology and health | Sheng Sitong | [email protected]

Video Channel: TEDx Talks

Sheng Sitong is the brain behind HYK gene sequencing company in Shenzhen. He has emphasized on the fact that advancement in the gene technology can provide better medical treatment to high risk ailments and can give hope to many families across the globe. Sitong Sheng is the brain behind the HYK gene sequencing company. HYK Gene was officially established in Shenzhen in 2008 but the R&D began before, while he was doing research at his own laboratory in Charlottesville, Virginia. Sheng already had an idea to start a company and commercialize the technology but didn't know if it was better to do it in the US or in China. Encouragement of the then-Minister of Health of China, Minister Chen Zhu, helped Sheng to take his novel technology to China to establish a truly Chinese innovative gene sequencing company – with its own independent intellectual property rights and patents. Sheng was therefore invited back as one of the first batch of China’s ‘Thousand Talents Plan’. HYK Gene is a product company. While China is now a global giant in the field of genome sequencing, the vast majorities of players here do not have their own products but rather, act as users or distributors for foreign products.
