The University hosted a delegation from Wenzhou Medical University (WMU) on Wednesday, 25 May.

Liverpool has two major collaborations with WMU, one led by Professor Ahmed Elsheik from the School of Engineering, the other by Professor David Fernig from the Institute of Integrative Biology.

The WMU party visited some of Liverpool’s key research facilities, including the Centre for Genomics Research, the Centre for Cell Imaging and the Centre for Proteome Research in the Institute of Integrative Biology, the Clinical Research Facility in the Royal Liverpool Hospital and Professor Elsheik’s Opthalmology Research facilities in the School of Engineering.
