On Friday 28th April three members of staff from APCF went to Shenzhen for a one day seminar held at the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences and sponsored by Tecniplast China.

To the surprise of the APCF satff it was with great pleasure that we met colleagues from most of the other Hong Kong institutions. In fact, the Hong Kong contingent formed a significant proportion of the audience.

Speakers were of an international reputation and included Dr. Khary Adams, ‎Director, Laboratory Animal Resources at Incyte, Dr. Fon Chang, Sr. Director Global Comparative Medicine at Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Dr. Mme. Chang from SIAT and Mr. Leopoldo Zauner from Techniplast

To say that old dogs learn no new tricks was proved totally incorrect because several ideas described by the speakers resonated with the APCF staff who amongst them have approx. 75 years of combined experience. UST Faculty will notice some changes soon to be introduced which will ensure management of animal health becomes more streamlined.

These changes will be posted Policies & Procedures page of the InfoSite website.
