The course started on track with the first ever welcome tram party in the heart of the city. After two weeks of stimulating lectures and workshops, Mr Leo KUNG, Chairman of the HKU-Pasteur Research Centre Board of Directors invited the students to indulge themselves with Cantonese delicacies and a selection of rare and fine French wines during the Award Dinner at Conrad Hong Kong hotel.
