Participation in CUHK-The University of California, San Diego Workshop (9 April 2019)
Prof. Chan Wai-yee, Director of the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) cum Pro-Vice-Chancellor/Vice-President and School members participated in the first joint workshop between The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and The University of California, San Diego (UCSD), U.S.A on 9 April 2019. Over 30 researchers from both universities were gathered in CUHK to explore collaboration opportunities in the areas of neuroscience, biomaterials and robotics.
Following the opening ceremony of the one-day workshop, the delegates from UCSD, including Prof. Robert Sah, Professor of Department of Bioengineering, UCSD, were invited to visit Lo Kwee-Seong Integrated Biomedical Sciences Building. They were first briefed on the latest development of SBS and The Institute for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (iTERM), and then guided to tour the Core Laboratories of the School to learn more about our research facilities.
To further exchange academic views in specific research areas, three group meetings were held between the delegates and members of SBS and iTERM. The participating SBS and iTERM members included Prof. Kenneth Lee, Prof. Feng Bo, Prof. Wan Chao, Prof. Jiang Xiaohua, Prof. Anna Blocki, Prof. Chan Hon-fai, Prof. Elmer Ker, Prof. Jiang Yangzi, Prof. Lee Chienwei and Prof. Michelle Wang. Through strengthening mutual understanding, it is our hope to forge closer partnership and research collaboration between SBS and UCSD in the near future.
