In May 2018, a TMU delegation visited the Burdenko Neurosurgery Institute, RUDN University and Lomonosov Moscow State University and signed a memorandum of understanding with Sechenov University.

The delegation also participated in discussions at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in Moscow. Topics included higher education management strategies, educational values and the Russian biomedical industry’s development.

The delegation visited several Russian research and educational institutions. At the Burdenko Neurosurgery Institute, they discussed neural injuries with the director and other physicians, agreeing to pursue future collaborations and share research results and regular progress reports.

At Sechenov University, the TMU team signed a university-level memorandum of collaboration focusing on biomedical engineering and drug development. Discussions with First Vice Rector Andrey Svistunov touched on the universities’ roles in research development, future bilateral meetings and academic staff and student exchanges.

The TMU delegation met with the dean of RUDN University’s college of medicine to discuss bilateral meetings as well as staff and student exchanges. At Lomonosov Moscow State University they attended a presentation made by the director and a representative of the generative medicine laboratory, and at the Gause Institute of New Antibiotics they discussed bilateral cooperation to promote drug development.

The TMU team invited scholars from Lomonosov Moscow State University’s College of Medicine and from Gause Institute of New Antibiotics to visit Taiwan in September 2018. These exchanges are expected to help overseas universities to understand Taiwan’s higher education norms and to lead to future exchanges and bilateral visits.
