In the keynote speech session, four Peking University alumni shared their experience and expertise in diverse industries and fields, including Dr. Nie Xiaoyi, a researcher in the Royal College of Art; Sinologist, historian, and former director of the Chinese Library of the British Library, Wu Fangsi; Fu Guoliang, founder & CEO of GeneFirst; Dr. Gan Wei, a postdoctoral researcher at the Wellcome Human Genetics Research Center at the University of Oxford.
At the close of proceedings all delegates were invited to enjoy a buffet dinner in our grand great hall and continue discussing the talking points of the afternoon. It was another brilliant opportunity for our current students to engage with and interact with PKU Alumni that are now flourishing in various roles around the UK and the world.
