Jointly organized by the Centre for Oncology and Immunology and HKUMed – The University of Hong Kong, the Croucher Summer Course in Immunology was concluded with great success on 1 Aug.
It was our absolute pleasure to have Prof. CS Lau, Dean of Medicine of HKU, and Prof. Tak Mak, Co-Director (Scientific) of the Centre for Oncology and Immunology, to be the course directors. Together with 9 distinguished international immunology experts as the course lecturers, the one-day course featured a comprehensive programme under the theme of immunology, which covered topics such as T-cell therapy, B-cell biology, and Immune microenvironment.
We were thrilled to hear so many profound and thought-provoking discussions among the 40 selected participants in the Q&A sessions. The interactive discussions were truly enlightening, where young scientists had the opportunities to learn and interact with world-renowned international experts.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the participants and speakers who attended. It could not have been so rewarding without their valuable contributions to the active discussions. A special thank you to our sponsor - Croucher Foundation for their support to this event.
At COI, we are committed to provide a ground for young scientists to flourish and will continue to nurture talents for the research industry. We look forward to more impacts to be made in the years to come!
