2018 Scientific Symposium

The 2018 scientific symposium co-organised between MWLC and local universities in Hong Kong explored possibilities of collaboration.

This was the second opportunity for our scientists, both from the Hong Kong and Stockholm nodes, to connect with other researchers from universities in Hong Kong, and further explore possibilities of collaboration. It was a densely packed day with 20 presentations limited to twenty minutes each on various topics.

The four sessions covered topics on epigenetics of stem cells, biomedical engineering, tissue repair and gene-editing. During breaks the participants mingled and exchanged ideas.
