CBN Hosts Prestigious Chinese Delegation
The Center for Behavioral Neuroscience at Georgia State University was recently one of only two National Science Foundation Science and Technology Centers to host a prestigious delegation of scientists from the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
After meeting with directors of the U.S. National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health in Washington, D.C., the three-member delegation traveled to Atlanta where they met with CBN leadership, June 3-4.
“We are pleased to be in Atlanta and look forward to learning more about the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience,” said NSFC President Chen Yiyu.
In addition to learning about the Center’s daily operations, the delegation was treated to a behind-the-scenes’ tour of Zoo Atlanta’s panda, orangutan, and gorilla exhibits to learn more about the Center’s partnership and on-going research with the Zoo.
“We are excited about the interest that the National Natural Science Foundation of China has taken in the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience, and we look forward to the possibility of exploring more collaborations between the CBN and Chinese neuroscientists,” said Elliott Albers, Ph.D., GSU Regents Professor of Biology and Director of the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience.
