Welcome dinner with delegate from Imperial College, London University and Kadoorie Charitable Foundation

On August 7, 2019 Associate Professor Supat Sinawat, Associate Dean for International Relations and Cooperation Strategies at Khon Kaen University Faculty of Medicine, participated in a welcome dinner for Ms. Mya Kirwan, Executive Officer, Kadoorie Charitable Foundation; Professor Richard Syms, Imperial College London; Dr. Christopher Wadsworth, Imperial College London at Krua Rim Nam Restaurant. The reason for their visit is that the Faculty of Medicine, Khon Kaen University Bile Duct Cancer research team has just received funding from Kadoorie Charitable Foundation through Imperial College London. This funding is intended for the research team to improve healthcare in this region of the world, beginning by finding a solution to liver fluke related diseases and bile duct cancer. They plan to start a project in Lao PDR, under the title “Combatting Cholangiocarcinoma in the Lao PDR”, then slowly move on to help other countries. Our visitors came to oversee the program and soon they have to go to Lao PDR as well. On behalf of the Faculty of Medicine, we wish them a safe and pleasant journey.
