Afterwards, three LSIC representatives, Professor Zhou, Dr Yu and Ms Connie Ngo, a radiographer, provided everyone with informative presentations on the development status and operation plan, remarkable facilities and an overview of MRI safety issues of LSIC.
While the participating researchers demonstrated a genuine interest in utilising the LSIC facilities in their research endeavours, the invited researchers further shared with everyone their well-considered proposals to leverage the facilities in their individual and collaborative transdisciplinary research. Subsequently, there was a stimulating discussion over the usability and applications of the MRI facilities.
The inspirational sharing was seamlessly followed by an exhilarating in-person tour to LSIC guided by the dedicated LSIC representatives. Throughout the visit, the enthusiastic participants actively posed enlightening questions and engaged in in-depth and insightful discussions with Professor Zhou and other LSIC members, which marked a rewarding conclusion to the event.
