A delegation from University of Waterloo, led by the Nobel laureate Prof. Donna Strickland, a winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics 2018, paid a courtesy visit to The Hong Kong Polytechnic University for her first time and met with PolyU President Prof. Jin-Guang Teng.

During the visit, the two universities discussed Vision Science around the common research topics on myopia and vision science between PolyU’s School of Optometry and Waterloo’s School of Optometry; and confirmed the collaboration between PolyU’s Faculty of Health and Social Sciences and Waterloo’s Faculty of Science on world-class ocular and biomedical research to address vital population health and ageing imperatives. Prof. Donna Strickland is one of the key members in this research group. She will lead a flagship project to treat age-related macular degeneration.

The Waterloo delegation representatives included Dean of Faculty of Science Prof. Bob Lemieux, Prof. Laura Lemieux, Prof. Ben Thompson, Dr. Stan Woo, Prof. Lyndon Jones, Mr. Dave Timms and Ms. Pamela Smyth.
