As coordinated by the Office of Academic Links (China) of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), a delegation from Shandong University (SDU), comprising Prof. Fan Liming, President of SDU and Prof. Chen Zijiang, Vice-president of SDU and other 4 SDU members visited the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) on 2 April 2019.
Upon their arrival at Lo Kwee-Seong Integrated Biomedical Sciences Building, Prof. Wan Chao and Prof. Lu Gang briefed the visitors on the latest development of SBS. A guided tour of the Core Laboratories and Animal Holding Core was arranged afterwards for the delegates to learn the advanced research facilities of the School. Before having the lunch meeting with Prof. Chan Wai-yee, Director of SBS, the visitors were arranged to take a look at the CUHK-SDU Joint Laboratory on Reproductive Genetics, which has been established in our School since December 2013.
Our School has closely collaborated with SDU, including the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding and establishment of joint laboratory in 2013, as well as follow-up academic exchange (e.g. in May 2014, and Aug 2015). We believe this visit has deepened the academic linkage and further explored more collaborative opportunities between CUHK and SDU in the near future.
