Memorandum of Cooperation between Chang Gung University and City University of Hong Kong

Memorandum of Cooperation between Chang Gung University and City University of Hong Kong

Department of Biomedical Sciences

Memorandum of cooperation was signed between the Department of Biomedical Sciences of Chang Gung University and its counterpart from City University of Hong Kong on the 8th of December 2017. A summer exchange program involving both institutions that lasts for 6 weeks will commence in the summer of 2018, which grants the participating students an opportunity to visit the research laboratories of related fields as well as taking part in thematic research projects. Besides, this program also provides a diverse environment for students to indulge in different cultures as well as to enrich their university life. The signing ceremony was held in the 1st Medical Science Building, with 7 professors from City University of Hong Kong attending the event. The memorandum was co-signed by Dr. Temy Mok (director of the International Program, Department of Biomedical Sciences, City University of Hong Kong), Dr. Mingliang He (Department of Biomedical Sciences, City University of Hong Kong), Prof. Li-Man Hung (head of the Department of Biomedical Sciences, Chang Gung University) and Prof. Dah-Chuan Gong (director of the Center for International Academic Cooperation, Chang Gung University) under the witness of Prof. Jin-Chung Chen (dean of the Graduate Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Chang Gung University). The attending 7 professors from City University of Hong Kong also joined the afternoon academic exchange session in order to promote the research and academic features of their department.

Prof. Li-Man Hung stated that the Department of Biomedical Sciences is actively seeking overseas training opportunities for students, so they can expand their horizons when visiting these overseas research institutions. In recent years, some students have participated in the summer exchange program at Pennsylvania State University in the United States. There were also some students who demonstrated outstanding performance in their summer research at Xiamen University. Associate Prof. Mingliang He of City University of Hong Kong visited our campus last year to give a speech to the biomedical students. Since City University of Hong Kong was in the midst of setting up the Department of Biomedical Sciences at that time, he took the opportunity to discuss the possibilities of organizing summer exchange programs and academic exchange between both universities. A mutual consensus was finally achieved earlier this year. With the implementation of this memorandum starting from summer 2018, City University of Hong Kong will accept at least six undergraduate students from the Department of Biomedical Sciences of Chang Gung University to their designated professors' laboratories annually. Meanwhile, Chang Gung University will also accept six students from City University of Hong Kong to our laboratories as well. This is a great initiative to promote international academic exchange between both universities as well as to foster globalization.

Ouyang Dong Sheng, a senior student from our Department of Biomedical Sciences, who is also an expatriate from Hong Kong, expresses his delight in the establishment of a formal communication channel between City University of Hong Kong and Chang Gung University, which enables students from both universities to pursue their studies during summer as well as to have fun travel experience. He was deeply touched by the enthusiasm, friendliness and the sharing culture of Taiwanese when he first arrived on this island. He believes that visiting Hong Kong students could have the opportunity to experience a different pace of life, indulge in fresh air and enjoy the clear starry sky of Taiwan. As for Taiwanese students who visit Hong Kong City University, they could experience the bustling metropolis, as well as different cultures and attitudes of Hong Kong citizens. The benefits of this exchange program extend far beyond the academic aspect, as the exchange students could broaden their horizons and have enjoyable memories during their stay in a foreign nation.
