International Women's Health Research Project is focus of new agreement between WSU and Huazhong University of Science and Technology

A new agreement between Wayne State University and Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) at Tongji Medical College will initiate collaborative research in the field of women's health and be conducted by researchers at the two institutions.

Dr. Gil Mor, scientific director of the C.S. Mott Center, and Dr. Marcus Zervos, assistant dean of global affairs at the School of Medicine, represented WSU at the signing ceremony Nov. 7. Professor Jianguo Chen, vice president of HUST and dean of Tongji Medical College, and Professor Aihua Liao, dean of the Institute of Reproductive Health at Tongji Medical College, also participated in the ceremony.

Zervos, who visited Union Hospital and Tongji Hospital while in China, says he hopes the agreement will promote additional partnership opportunities between the universities, including teacher-student exchanges. Chen says he believes that this exchange will be expanded to include different levels of medical science and engineering.

The Office of International Programs leads Wayne State's global engagement by creating opportunities that foster international education and research, facilitate the exchange of individuals and ideas that promote global competencies and citizenship, and provide resources that support the expansion of the university's global agenda.
