Visit to the University of Medicine 1 at Yangon, Myanmar
Prof. Shinji Tsukahara
University of Medicine 1, Yangon / Myanmar
I have visited the University of Medicine 1 (UM1) at Yangon, Myanmar in Nov. 2014. Saitama University (SU) and UM1 have an Academic Partnership Agreement, and this was my second visit to the UM1. Purpose of visit was to meet and to have discussions with Prof. Ohnmar and her lab members at UM1 about their research projects. In the meeting, we discussed about out future collaborative work plans.
I paid a courtesy visit to Prof. Thet Khaing Win, the president of the UM1, and Prof. Myat Thandar, the former vice president of UM1 and the present president of the University of Nursing, Yangon. Prof. Thandar helped us with signing the Academic Partnership Agreement between SU and UM1, and this meeting was a great opportunity to renew acquaintance.
