UC Irvine Student Joins Our Summer Programme

Student Julia Wu of UC Irvine is among the 80 students selected to join this year’s Summer Undergraduate Research Programme (SURP) at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Under the supervision of Prof Alice Kong from our Department of Medicine and Therapeutics, Julia is involved in a study on Lifestyle Factors & Glycemic Control in Patients with Diabetes, working closely with patients and PhD students in the laboratories of the Prince of Wales Hospital, CUHK’s teaching hospital.

“I really enjoy the cultural activities organized by the programme and working at the hospital, I am getting to visit the different laboratories here, giving me a good picture of how the system works in Hong Kong. There is a good balance of academic work and leisure discovery of the city together with other students from the programme.”

SURP is an eight-week attachment programme that aims at providing international undergraduate students the opportunity to develop research skills and knowledge while working alongside experts in the field. Students get to enjoy cultural tours to explore the city, attend research talks to expand their horizons, and wrap up their attachment with a poster sharing session.
