Prof. Cherry Wainwright, Director of the Institute for Health & Welfare Research, School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, U.K. visited our School on 21 November 2011. During the visit, Prof. Wainwright met with Prof. Chan Wai-Yee, SBS Director and Prof. Kenneth K.H. Lee, Chief of Stem Cell and Regeneration (SCR) Program to further discuss research collaborations between our School and Robert Gordon University, subsequent to her last visit in November 2010 and the return visit paid by Prof. Lee in February 2011.

Prof. Wainwright gave a talk on "The Institute for Health & Welfare Research at Robert Gordon University: A model for growing multidisciplinary research".
