A promising collaboration between the Hong Kong University and INSERM
For the first time, a delegation from the Centre for Research in Transplantation and Immunology of INSERM (Paris, France) has come to Hong Kong in order to develop a collaboration with the Department of Surgery of the University of Hong Kong.
During 3 days, from 18th to 20th of May 2015, a symposium of “Transplantation & Cancer Immunology” has been held in the University of Hong Kong to discuss about Transplantation and Cancer Immunology.
This symposium chaired by Pr Nancy K Man of the Department of Surgery, had been a success as it has demonstrated a lot of common interest on the topic.
Another international symposium will be held in Nantes (France) next year to engage the next step of the collaboration.
The organization of this symposium was possible thanks to the support of the program “Procore”: a joint program between Hong Kong (RGC) and France (Ministry of Foreign affairs and Ministry of Research), which promotes excellent collaborations in science and technology between France and Hong Kong, in all areas including social sciences.
