Building relationships between Adelaide and Qingdao


Today SAHMRI signed an agreement with the Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University (AHQU) to promote cooperation in scientific research, academic exchange and skills development.

The agreement focuses on building a collaborative relationship with AHQU across a wide range of areas including:

  • endocrinology; appetite and metabolism
  • oncology; gastric cancer and neuroblastoma
  • atherosclerosis and ischaemic stroke

The signing marks another step in SAHMRI's mission to build strong collaborative networks across Australia and around the world, to achieve better health outcomes for patients everywhere.

Professor Steve Wesselingh said this was an exciting opportunity for researchers from SAHMRI and AHQU. "SAHMRI is looking forward to a productive working relationship with our colleagues at AHQU in China," he said.

"We're excited to be establishing new partnerships and fostering collaboration in health and medical research around the world."
