**Abstract:** I will talk about some recent work on the strong Novikov conjecture for groups generated by coarsely embeddable groups under extensions and admissible limits. Here we say a group $G$ is an admissible limit of a family of groups $\{ G_i \}$ if the following is satisfied: for any finite subset $F$ of $G$, there exists $n$ such that the preimage of $F$ in $G_i$ injects into $G$ for all $i > n$. This talk is based on my joint work with Jintao Deng and Guoliang Yu.
