Through this venture, immunologists from China and Oxford are being brought together to work on projects spanning the field of human immunology. They are working to promote scientific and technological exchange and co-operation on issues related to health and to conduct large-scale collaborative health research projects of major public health and medical significance between the two institutions.
This high-level medical innovative talent training programme, supported by the China Scholarship Council, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College and the University of Oxford, which is referred to as the MD/PHD Scholarship Programme, is aimed at cultivating talented students to be interdisciplinary and innovative clinicians/scientists.
