Prof. Chan Wai-yee, Director of School of Biomedical Sciences and Prof. Li Gang, Deputy Chief of the Stem Cell and Regeneration Program served as two of the Co-Chairs of the event, whereas Prof. Wan Chao, served as member of the Organizing Committee. Along with more than 30 invited speakers from all over the world, our School members including Prof. Kenneth K.H. Lee, Chief of the Stem Cell and Regeneration Program, Prof. Chan Hsiao-chang, Prof. Feng Bo, Prof. Jiang Xiaohua, Prof. Kingston Mak also gave talks as guest speakers on their research work in different fields of relating to the theme of the Symposium.
Being the third time that the Symposium was held, it generated an effective and interactive platform for basic scientists and clinicians to share their experiences and latest research findings in areas of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. The 4th CUHK International Symposium on Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine will be held on 17 and 18 November 2014 in Hong Kong.
