On behalf of Biomedoscope, Mr. Enoch Poon, the President, expressed his gratitude to all participants including the teaching staff of the BSc Programme, the representatives of the Postgraduate Student Association (PSA) of SBS and the fellow societies from CUHK, The University of Hong Kong and The Polytechnic University of Hong Kong for their attendance and support.

It is our earnest hope that the establishment of the Society can provide a desirable and interactive communication platform among the BSc students and the teaching staff of the School. It is also hoped that students’ sense of belonging to the School and the bonding between SBSPSA and the Society will be strengthened with more communication and interaction through joint organization of different academic, social and recreational activities for our students.
