On the morning of December 11th 2017, DPAG’s Head of Department, Professor David Paterson, visited the Chinese PLA General Hospital (PLAGH) in Beijing, where he was received by the President of the Hospital, Professor Guoquan Ren. 

The PLAGH, also known as Hospital 301, is the largest teaching hospital in Beijing and was ranked the best hospital in China in 2016.

The purpose of the visit was to facilitate closer collaboration between Oxford and Chinese Medical Sciences, after Liu Yandong, the Vice-Premier of the People’s Republic of China, visited Oxford in December 2017, to witness the signing of research agreements between the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and the University of Oxford Medical Sciences Division.

Such collaborations between Oxford and its Chinese partners have led to some of the world’s largest studies, as well as the establishment of a new research focus in the Burdon Sanderson Cardiac Science Centre, here in the Department, on the physiological action of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

During the visit, both Professor Paterson and Professor Ren spoke of the achievements of Madam Liu Yandong’s visit to Oxford, the active promotion of medical cooperation between Britain and China, and the hope that both sides will jointly make greater contributions to the field of medicine.

As part of his trip to China, Professor Paterson also spoke at centenary celebrations at Peking University for graduate education and medical education on behalf of Oxford, as well as visiting the HQ for the World Federation of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Tasly Holdings Group, which with 20,000 employees is the largest TCM Pharma based in Tianjin.
