CNBP researchers from the University of Adelaide, Dr Jingxian Yu and Dr John Horsley, were invited by several academic facilities in Wuhan, China, to disseminate their recent research.
Lectures were given to the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China University of Geosciences (CUG), and Central China Normal University (CCNU).
A number of ‘flyers’ were circulated defining the role of the CNBP, in the hope of inspiring bright, enthusiastic students and academics alike to consider a move to Australia.
Whilst in Wuhan, they also had the opportunity and pleasure of visiting CNBP partner, Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (HUST), and the Key Laboratory of Biomedical Polymers of the Ministry of Education, at Wuhan University.
Networking provided a number of possible future collaborations, including electron transport in single molecules, with Professors Shan Jin and Shenghua Liu (CCNU), and peptide-based nanocarriers for drug delivery, with Prof Xianzheng Zhang (Wuhan University).
