A Sino-Sweden Joint Workshop: New developments in Oesophageal Cancer

A well-attended workshop was hosted by the research groups Upper GI Surgery and Surgical Care Science on the 13th to 14th of October with the title "Recent Developments in Oesophageal Cancer" in the Aula Medica at KI.

Among the very prominent guests was the President of the Nanjing Medical University, professor Hongbing Shen, together with other researchers from the same university. We discussed on-going studies, future plans and opportunities for collaboration between the Chinese researchers and the groups Upper GI Surgery and Surgical Care Science. We also listened to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor for International Affairs at KI, professor Maria Masucci and a nestor of KI-China collaborations, professor Ingemar Ernberg.

The workshop was a part of a China-Sweden Network Grant we received earlier this year, funded by the Swedish Research Council in Sweden and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) in China.
