Tainan, Taiwan, December 9th, 2009

A Virology Lab in Children's Hospital No. 1 (CH1), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, sponsored by National Cheng Kung University Hospital (NCKUH) and National Health Research Institutes (NHRI) in Taiwan was launched on November 11th, 2009.   

Prof. Ih-Jen Su (蘇益仁), former Director General of Center for Disease Control (CDC), Taiwan, and current Deputy Superintendent for Research of National Cheng Kung University Hospital and Distinguished Investigator of Division of Infectious Disease in National Health Research Institutes, is recognized for uplifting medical care and research and enhancing the public's wellbeing in Vietnam with the prestigious Ho Chi Minh Medal Award and Honorous Citizenship of Ho Chi Minh City. 

Prof. Da Hsuan Feng (馮達旋), Senior Executive Vice President of NCKU, praised Prof. Su's long term humanitarian devotion in Taiwan and abroad. Prof. Su commented that he simply follows his dream since youth and has strived to fulfill his mission as an intellectual by serving the public with his medical expertise. Being known to the Taiwanese public as an authority on pandemic affairs since SARS and in the current H1N1 flu, Prof. Su, an expert on biology and pathology of malignant lymphoma, particularly EBV-associated T cell lymphoma, pathogenesis and mechanism of HBV pre-S mutants and hepatocarcinogenesis, and pathogenesis and therapy of virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome, said in the coming 3-5 years he and his team will continue to explore hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently Prof. Su and his team have made another breakthrough in HBV and HCC research which will revolutionize both fields.      

Since 2001 NCKUH and CH1 have started research collaboration on dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) with technical support from World Health Organization (WHO). In 2003, Prof. Ih-Jen Su and Prof. Ching-Chuan Liu (劉清泉) provided technical support for CH1's study on lymphoma and Epstein-Bar Virus infection, and in 2006, an official 3-year research project on hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis was initiated among the three institutions.
