CUHK/Osaka U Research Day

CUHK/Osaka U Research Day

Date: 5th December 2015
Venue: Osaka University Oncology Center, 5/F Cancer Board Room

Fifteen clinicians, research scientists and PhD students from both the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University were joined together for scientific discussions and collaborations at the beautiful Suita Campus of the Osaka University. Under the guidance of Professor Chi Pui Calvin Pang and Professor Kohji Nishida, collaborations on clinical cornea and external eye diseases, glaucoma and macular degeneration genetic studies, inflammatory eye diseases and neural signaling pathways have been consolidated.
