Welcome back! For the 10th Anniversary of its Immunology Course, HKU-Pasteur hosted a world class symposium with the course alumni and special guests.
In front of a packed seminar room, the day started with welcome addresses by Suet-Yi Leung, Associate Dean (Research) of the LKS Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong, Leo Kung, Chairman of the Pasteur Foundation Asia and a video message by Alexandre Giorgini, Consul General of France in Hong Kong and Macau. The symposium was a great success for everyone, a prestigious event in a warm and friendly atmosphere. All day long, alumni from all over the world shared their experience and projects, took part in a poster presentation session and enjoyed being back together after many years.
It was also the occasion for the 2018 students to meet their predecessors and discuss career paths and experiences, as this day concluded the 10th Immunology Course, starting a new batch of alumni that will strengthen this amazing network.
This hectic day ended in a joyful and festive ambiance over dinner, celebrating immunology, knowledge and the Pasteurian values. A great way to start the festive season!
