Congratulations to our co-founder and chief medical officer Dr Andrew Stephen Lee for selected into Chinese government’s “the Thousand Talents Plan”.
February 8, 2018, the special office for the introduction of overseas top talent in the Central Organization Department officially announced the list of candidates for the fourteenth installment of the “the Thousand Talents Plan”. Our co-founder Dr Andrew Stephen Lee was selected as selected in the national “the Thousand Talents Plan” overseas top talent plan.
China initiated “the Recruitment Program of Global Experts” (known as “the Thousand Talents Plan”) since the end of 2008, under which it would bring in overseas top talents to China over the next five to ten years. Relying upon National Key Innovation Projects, National Key Disciplines and National Key Laboratories, central SOEs and state-owned commercial and financial institutions, and various industrial parks (mainly the high-tech development zones), this plan called for strategic scientists or leading talents who can make breakthroughs in key technologies or can enhance China’s high-tech industries and emerging disciplines.
