Li Foundation funds Chinese scholars to study systems biology at UCSF
By UCSF School of Pharmacy Editorial Staff / Fri Oct 13, 2006
The New York-based Li Foundation, which for more than 15 years has been supporting Chinese scientists to study at UCSF, is now targeting its support to scholars from Peking University's Center for Theoretical Biology to study at the University of California's (UC's) California Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Research (QB3), which is headquartered at UCSF. At QB3, Peking scientists will work in the area of systems biology.
The Li Foundation has committed US$63,000 to the fellowship program through a gift to the UCSF School of Pharmacy. The Li Foundation Fellowship Program will be directed by Chao Tang, PhD, faculty member in the UCSF School of Pharmacy who holds faculty positions in the UCSF School of Medicine and at Peking University and is a faculty affiliate of QB3. As director, Tang follows School of Pharmacy faculty member Chin-Tzu Peng, PhD, who is now retiring from the position after 15 years of volunteer service and commitment. The first Li Fellow in systems biology is expected at UCSF before the end of December 2006.
