The seminar, “Research or Business? You can do both!”, will be led by Professor Aimin Xu from the University of Hong Kong, and runs from 3 to 6pm in Seminar Room 105, Ground Floor, Life Sciences Building.

Xu has been highly successful in the academic field, and also in developing business via promoting the interface of both areas.

He is the director of State Key Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, HKU; the director of Antibody and Immunoassay Services, HKU; and, the independent director of DAAN GENE.

Xu’s ideas, experience and knowledge on academia and business will benefit and inspire many students and staff at York to initiate or develop their careers in academia, in combination with business.

The event’s schedule includes an opening introduction, the seminar, and a reception.

The seminar may be of particular interest to faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, as well as undergraduates in the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Health and Business.

All are welcome.
