China-Australia Centre for Personalised Immunology launch
On 25 May 2016, a delegation from China, including the President of Renji Hospital, Professor Li Weiping, visited The John Curtin School of Medical Research (ANU, Canberra, Australia) to unveil a plaque commemorating the official launch of the China-Australia Centre for Personalised Immunology combined with a tour of the facilities. This is a strategic alliance between the CPI and Renji Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine that has been established, offering many opportunities for collaboration between the two centres. The Renji hospital is refitting a large laboratory over two floors for use by CPI staff and dedicated Chinese staff, as well as providing significant funding support over six years for staff, students and consumables for use in the China laboratory. Congratulations to CPI Director Professor Carola Vinuesa, who has been awarded a prestigious International Expert Fellowship by The Ministry of Science and Technology of the People´s Republic of China.
