Drexel University President John Fry was in Shanghai yesterday to announce an international research partnership.
The university and the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute have agreed to collaborate on projects forwarding scientific and technology innovation. And it just so happens that the vice president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and president of the Shanghai Branch, Dr. Jiang Mianheng, is a 1991 Drexel grad.
SARI is a research organization jointly established by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Shanghai municipal government to promote sustainable economic and social development, interdisciplinary exploration and innovation, and advanced platforms for technology development.
While located in Shanghai, the Drexel-SARI Center will be an education base for Drexel, acting as a source for research, internships and co-ops out of the university.
