Following the mutual visits between the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) and Yantai Economic & Technological Development Area (YEDA) in April and May 2018, another delegation from Yantai, Shandong Province, China comprising Mr. Mu Shuqing, senior official of YEDA and three YEDA officials visited SBS again on 4 December 2018.
During the visit, Prof. Chan Wai-Yee, Director and Prof. Chan Sun-on, Associate Director (Undergraduate Education) of SBS briefed the delegates on the academic achievements and recent research development of SBS. The delegation was also led to tour the Core Laboratories to learn about SBS's advanced research equipment and facilities.
Through establishing a closer linkage with YEDA, it is our hope to explore potential academia-industry collaboration in biomedical sciences research and education so as to attract more funding and support from companies in YEDA to advance our development in research and education.
