This is indeed a remarkable achievement of the School ever since its establishment in mid 2009. In fact, the number of funded projects and total amount of grants obtained by our School in this exercise respectively accounted for about 34.5% and 40% of all the successful projects and total sum of funding obtained by the whole Faculty of Medicine.

We would like to extend again our heartiest congratulations to the above PIs! The results are definitely recognitions of their continued hard-work and full commitment to research excellence.
