A representative of a medical school in Taipei will visit with Old Dominion University faculty members in health sciences, sciences, education and engineering on Monday, July 24, to explore opportunities for collaboration.

Dr. Han-Sun Chiang of Fu-Jen University Medical School in Taiwan comes at the invitation of President Roseann Runte, and the visit has been coordinated by ODU Board of Visitors member Pat Tsao.

Chiang will tour the Technology Building together with Debbie Bauman, associate professor of dental hygiene, and Laurel Garzon, associate professor of nursing; the College of Sciences Major Instrument Cluster (COSMIC) laboratory with the COSMIC director, Patrick Hatcher, a specialist in environmental chemistry and geochemistry who is the Batten Endowed Chair in Physical Sciences at ODU; and the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics with Richard Nuccitelli, research associate professor of engineering, and Juergen Kolb, research assistant professor of engineering.

The Chinese visitor also has scheduled a stop at the Eastern Virginia Medical School, which operates the Reidy Center along with ODU.

William Graves, dean of the Darden College of Education, will host a lunch for Chiang and Tsao on the ODU campus.

Tsao, who was appointed to the ODU board in 2004, serves on the Academic and Research Advancement Committee. She founded INTECS International, Inc., an information technology company that is headquartered in Virginia, but has facilities in Taipei. She received a master's degree in computer science from ODU in 1983.
