Research for Public Good


HuaQiao Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization founded by the former successful entrepreneur Frank Yih, whose goal is to build a bridge of love and care through social service. In September, members of BioCraft paid a visit to HQF and had an interview with Mr. Yih. Afterwards, a partnership-like structure has been built between BioCraft and HQF to make long-term joint efforts in more goal-oriented programs of great social value.


One of the important prospects of BioCraft is to alleviate social problems through the power of science. We believe in that there seems scarcely any limit to what could be done in the way of producing a good world, if only men would use science wisely, just as Russell said.

We are eager to know how to use science wisely and clearly keeping ourselves in the lab and working behind closed door helps nothing. So we decided to seek for answers by going out, obtaining advice from the sagacious predecessors and doing some social work first to understand what is in need and what can be done by us.
