CMU has been strived to become internationally renowned institution in education, research and clinical care as its long term goal. Since returning to Taiwan to lead the CMU, President Hung has worked tirelessly with his wealth of international connections to promote the visibility of CMU in world research arena. Efforts include recruiting high caliber researchers from both domestic and worldwide, creating several international conferences e.g. ICABS and Online Academician forum, and recently joining the Global Cancer Consortium (GCC) as one of the pivotal members.
GCC was initially established in 2020, by Markey Cancer Center (Kentucky) with Tata Memorial Center (Mumbai), Manipal Academy of Higher Education (Manipal), and Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre and Research Institute in India, and Mayo Clinic Cancer Center (Rochester, Jacksonville, and Scottsdale) in the United States. Its mission of fostering global collaborations in education, research, treatment and community outreach to combat cancer is very much in line to that of CMU. Consortium activities include but not limit to the partnering institutions hosting monthly Faculty/Trainee Lectures and special guest seminars. Mini-Symposia are also held throughout the year. All basic science and clinical faculty and trainees at partnering or affiliated institutions are welcome to attend and actively participate in consortium activities.
CMU joined GCC in 2022 as a member in the executive committee for our role to provide strategic directions and to set policies for the consortium. Furthermore, CMU is capable to serve as a hub for the expansion of consortium in Southeast Asia region.
