Vice Chancellor returns from Asia trip

first_imgOxford’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Andrew Hamilton, has recently returned from a trip to Asia to forge and reinforce links in the region, particularly in the medical sciences.Professor Hamilton spent a week in the region visiting Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo from the 12th to the 19th May, and met Chinese Minister of Health, Dr Zhu Chen, to discuss Oxford’s medical research collaborations in China.Hamilton said, “It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that the medical research collaborations between Oxford and China are changing global health.”On the final day of his trip Professor Hamilton met with Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako, who are both Oxford alumni.A University spokesperson commented, “We are an international university with a global outlook, and there’s simply no international institution in the world now for whom Asia, and especially China, isn’t important.“Oxford has many, many links with both China and Japan, and these go back centuries. Oxford had its first Chinese visitor in 1687.”last_img read more
