The cooperation between PolyU, SPH and Biopharma Evolution will accelerate translational projects and eventually lead to the development of new drugs to benefit mankind.
The MoU was signed online by Prof. Wang Zuankai, Associate Vice President (Research and Innovation) of PolyU and Mr Zuo Min, President of Shanghai Pharmaceuticals Holding Co., Ltd. and Biopharma Evolution during the 2022 Pujiang Healthcare Industry & Finance Integration and Innovation Summit held in Shanghai this month.
