Visit from Korea University, South Korea

Led by Prof. Lee Hong Sik, Dean, College of Medicine, Korea University, a 5-member delegation visited the School of Biomedical Sciences on 3 October 2016.

Prof. Chan Wai-yee, Director; and Prof. Fung Kwok-pui, Associate Director (Academic Administration) of our School, warmly welcomed the guests and gave them a brief introduction on the School during a short meeting. The guests were then guided to tour the Core Laboratories of the School. Before visiting our School, the delegation had also visited the Faculty of Medicine (the Faculty) and signed a collaborative agreement on student exchange with the Faculty.

This is our first time receiving a delegation from Korea University and a good foundation was established for deepening mutual understanding in the future.
