Cheung, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, CUHK, Prof. Chan Kai-Ming, Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Faculty of Medicine, and our School members Prof. Kenneth K.H. Lee and Prof. Wan Chao.  During the meeting, the visitors were given a presentation on the Stem Cell and Regenerative Technology (SMART) Programme and discussed the opportunities for joint collaboration in various fields under the Programme.

Following the visit last year, the KI delegation visit allows the University and the School to further strengthen the academic linkage and scientific exchanges with institution in Europe, and to promote long term collaboration in research areas of mutual interests.
