President Li said, Sichuan University has laid a solid foundation in brain science research. West China Hospital of Sichuan University boasts not only a strong pool of basic research and clinical application research, but also the state-of-the-art platform and national key sci-tech infrastructure for translational medicine. He further noted that, SCU attaches great importance to brain research, especially the computer and human brain integration, known as “Double Brain Project”. It is hoped that Cynader and his team will further strengthen their cooperation with Sichuan University in brain science research, especially in frontier research, clinical application, translational medicine, so as to make greater contributions to human brain health, Li continued.
Cynader expressed his gratitude to SCU for its warm reception. Sichuan University has maintained close ties with UBC for a long time, he said. He hoped that this visit could further strengthen cooperation in brain science by drawing on the advantages of both sides in the form of mutual personnel engagement, establishment of cooperative teams and other ways to boost the brain science and human development.
Cynader is an internationally renowned scientist in brain science. The brain research center of UBC ranks top among the world's brain science research institutes and has a wide-ranging influence in the field of international brain science.
