Scientists at UWA were invited to join their colleagues at one of China’s most prestigious universities, the University of Science and Technology of China in a joint symposium to celebrate USTC’s 50th anniversary.
USTC is located in the city of Hefei in Anhui Province and attracts the top science students from all over China.
The symposium was organised by the College of Life Sciences with the theme of ‘Frontiers in the Life Sciences’. The President of USTC and UWA Vice-Chancellor Professor Alan Robson jointly opened the symposium. Eight UWA staff gave presentations on topics ranging from structural biology through to cancer biology. Plans for future collaborations were also discussed. This year, UWA will host a reciprocal visit from staff at USTC.
