International Scientific Advisory Board | MWLC

An international Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) consisting of five internationally respected scientists with expertise relevant to MWLC was established in 2018. Its function is to provide expert, non-binding advice to make better strategic decisions fundamental to accomplishing the mission of MWLC. In November 2019, the first SAB evaluation meeting was conducted in Hong Kong. SAB members had in-depth discussions with our researchers and gave recommendations on the future scientific direction.
