Sharing the same vision of nurturing future leaders in clinical neuroscience as CUHK, Lee Hysan Foundation (LHF) has generously made a donation to the University to establish the Lee Hysan Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neurosciences.
As a long-standing supporter of Education, Lee Hysan Foundation has actively supported meaningful and impactful charity initiatives in Hong Kong for over 40 years.
Two outstanding fellows, Dr. Cindy LENG (Research Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine and Therapeutics) and Dr. Idy HO (Research Associate, Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care) were identified to join the programme as Lee Hysan Fellows. Dr. Bonnie Lam (Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Medicine and Therapeutics) will join the programme starting July 2020.
NDCN is one of the leading and largest clinical neuroscience department in Europe, has a multidisciplinary workforce of close to 500 people. They build on a long history of research in neurology, brain imaging, eye disorders, and anaesthetics in Oxford and play an important role in developing the careers of young scientists.
Prof. Irene TRACEY (Warden, Merton College, Professor of Anaesthetic Neuroscience & Pro-Vice-Chancellor, University of Oxford), the immediate former head of NDCN, is leading the Programme at Oxford.
Founded in 1624, Pembroke College is a lively and ambitious intellectual community that serves the common good through the promotion of scholarship and research.
Fellows will have the privilege to be members of the Pembroke Senior Common Room, in which they can facilitate networking opportunities, accommodation, dining and library facilities.
“A close monitor and timely progress review with our collaboration partner is a key success to the establishment of this Fellowship Programme.” - Prof. Vincent Mok
Ms. Nancy Braithwaite, Academic Director of Pembroke College visited the Division of Neurology of CUHK in September 2018 at which collaboration directions were discussed.
A fruitful visit from Pembroke College was held in March 2018. CUHK and Pembroke College have been working closely to establish a wide spectrum of national and cross-strait joint projects. Establishing the Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme in Neuroscience is one of the key projects.
With the vision of making major global advancement in neuroscience and fostering long-standing partnership between scientists from the UK and HK, an Exploratory Workshop was successfully held in 2017 to explore the potential research and educational collaboration on the establishment of Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme in Neuroscience.
