SAIHST funded by the Ministry of Health and Welfare for ‘the Biomedical Global Leadership Training Project’
Funded by the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare, the Biomedical Global Leadership Training Project is organized by a consortium of three different institutions: Samsung Advanced Institute for Health Sciences & Technology (SAIHST), Department of Global Biomedical Engineering at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), and the Samsung Medical Center (Seoul).
There will be a government-funded project with 4.6 billion KRW in funding that will run until December 2022. The goal is to foster leaders with global mindsets through participation in diverse projects and research abroad with a leading healthcare organization that has signed an agreement with SAIHST. Researchers in master’s, Ph.D., or post-doctoral programs will be given opportunities to study abroad for six months to 1 year, and a stipend will be provided during their stay.
Hyo-Keun Lim, Director of SAIHST, said, “SAIHST was established as the first institute in the country that promotes multidisciplinary and convergent graduate education in translational medicine intending to vitalize the medical industry. We have continuously educated top global convergent talents, and I believe that the institute was selected due to our hard work and the infrastructure of the organization.” He further added, “I look forward to SAIHST becoming a globally recognized institute through systematic human resource management based on the involvement of this project.”
