A group of four delegates from ROHTO Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (ROHTO) and Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) visited the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) on 13 September 2019.
It was an exciting opportunity for faculty members from SBS and the Institute for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (iTERM), including Prof. Kenneth K.H. Lee, Prof. Anna Blocki, Prof. Lee Chien-wei, Prof. Chan Hon-fai, Prof. Wang Dan and Prof. Jiang Yangzi, to meet with Mr. Eiji Kobayashi, Managing Director of ROHTO and Ms. Hikari Kurogi, Senior Scientist of ROHTO, learning about the background of ROHTO and its current research innovations and initiatives. The delegation was then arranged to have a tour of the core facilities located in the Lo Kwee-Seong Integrated Biomedical Sciences Building.
Through reception of such delegations, we hope to build up closer connection with the industry, hence promoting more collaborative and translational research.
