3 October 2016

The University of Auckland hosted Maurice Wilkins Centre and the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica of Chinese Academy of Sciences have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) regarding staff exchange, drug development and clinical drug trials.

The MOC paves the way for the two organisations to facilitate the work of drug development companies within the new established China-New Zealand (Suzhou) Innovation Centre or other parts of China to carry out clinical trials in New Zealand.

The MOC was signed at a September 20 event at Suzhou Industrial Park following a signing on the establishment of the China-New Zealand (Suzhou) Innovation Centre.
