Tongji Medical College Overseas Alumni Association (TJMCOAA) is a U.S. Federal-registered non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the professional ties among our members, and between our members and Alma Mater. The Collection of Selected Papers by Tongji Medical College Overseas Alumni, which was initiated by Drs. Guohua Li, Steven (Sijiu) Shen, Huiyun Xiang, Marilyn (Mengrong) Li, Henry (Henyi) Liu in 2007, was an ongoing project organized by the TJMCOAA. Since 2013, the Collection is kindly sponsored by Medjaden Bioscience Limited, and Xia & He Publishing Inc. We are so proud that all the Collections are well received and appreciated by our Alma Mater, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Union Hospital in October 2016, and 110th anniversary of Tongji Medical University in May 2017, TJMCOAA invited overseas alumni to present their research achievements. Here, we are pleased and honored to present the selected scholarly work published by our fellow alumni around the world during 2015 and 2016. The 2016 edition is composed of 91 articles authored by 31 alumni from Europe and the USA. These publications not only exemplify the academic achievements of our overseas alumni, but also provide a snapshot of the international research trends in various biomedical fields; many of the articles are published in the most influential scientific journals such as Science, Nature and Cell, and the top tier journals in various specialties.
We hope this collection of publications will serve as an intellectual bridge between our fellow overseas alumni and Tongji faculties and students. Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments and suggestions.
Your feedback is much appreciated.
