The First CUHK – Monash Joint Symposium on Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering
Co-organized by the Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), and Monash University (Monash), Australia, the first CUHK – Monash Joint Symposium on Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering (the Symposium) was successfully held at the Lo Kwee-Seong Integrated Biomedical Sciences Building on 15 July 2018.
Officiated by Prof. Jack C.Y. Cheng, Convener of the Liaison Committee of CUHK – Monash Alliance in Medical Education and Research, and Prof. Chan Wai-yee, Director of School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) and Institute for Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine (iTERM), 20 talks were delivered by speakers from CUHK and Monash at the event. The Symposium was well attended by members of the SBS and the iTERM, members from other departments of CUHK, and overseas participants from Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI), Australia and Monash.
Our School has been participated in the mutual visits to Monash since 2016 (see previous academic visits HERE). In May 2017, the CUHK – Monash Alliance in Medical Education and Research was established as a transnational integrated collaboration to co-develop and co-invest in thematic areas of shared excellence in medical education and research. The synergistic collaborations are expected to lead to the development of high impact research programs and innovative medical education platforms.
