The CUHK – Sussex Cancer Science Workshop 2014

Under the coordination of the Office of Academic Links, "The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) – University of Sussex (Sussex) Cancer Science Workshop 2014" (the workshop) jointly organized by the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS), CUHK and the School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex, United Kingdom was successfully held on 3 December 2014.

The workshop was officiated by Prof. Chan Wai-yee, Director of SBS and Prof. Anthony T.C. Chan, Chairman of Department of Clinical Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, CUHK.  Speakers from our School,   clinical departments of the Faculty of Medicine, CUHK and Sussex shared at the workshop their latest research findings on topics including viral carcinogenesis, DNA damage, cancer epigenetics, disease biomarkers and drug targets.   The guests from Sussex were also guided to visit our Core Laboratories at the Lo Kwee-Seong Integrated Biomedical Sciences Building after the workshop.

The signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between CUHK and Sussex earlier in December 2013, and the mutual visits between the two institutions in June 2013 and March 2014 not only paved the way for the successful organization of the workshop, but also marked the enhanced collaboration in areas of mutual interests between the two institutions, especially in cancer science and neuroscience.
