CUHK Deepening Ties with World Leading Institutes for Transdisciplinary Medical Robotics Research to Reshape the Future of Diagnosis and Treatment
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) established partnerships with ETH Zurich, Imperial College London and Johns Hopkins University today (31 January) to deepen ties on transdisciplinary medical robotics research. The three top-notch overseas institutions will collaborate with CUHK through the planned Multi-Scale Medical Robotics Centre (MRC) which aims to develop effective and accessible imaging and robotic technologies that will reshape the future of medical diagnosis and treatment of diseases in multiple specialties, and ultimately, improve the quality of life of patients.
The event was witnessed by The Hon Mrs. Carrie LAM CHENG Yuet-ngor, The Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR); Professor Rocky S. TUAN, Vice-Chancellor and President of CUHK; and Mr. Nicholas W. YANG, Secretary for Innovation and Technology of the HKSAR Government.
The Hon Mrs. Carrie LAM, The Chief Executive of the HKSAR, said, “Today’s global alliance is made up of three international institutions and CUHK, which are all pioneers in medical robotics. With the coming together of these four prestigious universities, and their world-class robotics expertise, I’m confident the planned Multi-Scale Medical Robotics Centre’s research will advance the diagnosis and treatment of multiple medical specialties.”
