Prof. Andrew M.L. Chan and Prof. Alfred S. L. Cheng of the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) together with Prof. Cho Chi-hin, Emeritus Professor of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and the former Associate Director (Research) of SBS visited Southwest Medical University (SWMU), Luzhou, Sichuan Province between 2 and 4 November 2018.
Prof. Chan and Prof. Cheng were invited as the guest speakers of the 2018 International Symposium of Cancer and Inflammation (Chinese version only), which was jointly organised by SWMU and Sichuan Pharmacological Society. Prof. Chan and Prof. Cheng delivered talks titled “Functional interaction between growth and inflammatory pathways in glioblastoma” and “Efficacy and mechanistic basis of combinatorial epigenetic immunotherapy”, respectively. During the visit, both of them also received the Visiting Professorship of SWMU bestowed by Prof. Guangyi Liu, SWMU’s Vice President. The SBS delegation was guided to tour the China (Sichuan) Pilot Free Trade Zone to learn the latest economic development of Sichuan Province before departure.
The visit has fostered the academic exchange and mutual understanding between CUHK and SWMU. We are looking forward to further academic exchange and research collaboration between SBS and SWMU in the near future.
