    Professor Aaron Ciechanover, Nobel Prize laureate:

    "Young scientists from all over the world should discuss, exchange views, form friendships and jointly respond to global changes through the Comprehensive Health Care Forum. I believe this will be a great opportunity that will benefit everyone."

    Professor John Hepburn, University of British Columbia:

    "Under the current global COVID-19 pandemic situation, interdisciplinary and transnational cooperation is more important than ever. Extensive cooperation among experts in the medical field is the future trend and solution to the epidemic."


    Academician Li Lanjuan, Zhejiang University:

    "China and other countries in the world are at a distance that an airplane can reach. Now China has made marked progress in containing the virus, the global epidemic is still spreading and poses a serious threat to human health. Therefore, the principle of 'early detection, diagnosis, isolation and treatment' for epidemic prevention and control still needs to be emphasized."


    Academician Yang Huanming, BGI Group:

    "Life is still full of mysteries for us, but I am convinced that through continuous scientific research, we are gradually revealing more of its secrets, which is also an important goal for the development of life and health."


    Academician Chen Guoqiang, Shanghai Jiao Tong University:

    "Medicine can save the country. If medicine is developed, the country will be strong. Modern medicine pays more attention to multi-disciplinary integration, and studies on the entire life cycle and the entire disease process, as well as the individual and common pathogenesis of major diseases in an all-round, three-dimensional, and multi-perspective manner. "

    Academician Liu Liang, Macau University of Science and Technology:

    "Traditional Chinese medicine is a complex scientific system with profound scientific connotation. It calls for, more than other disciplines, integration of multi-disciplinary advanced technologies, talents of different academic backgrounds, and international cooperation to further expand the research on traditional Chinese medicine and contribute the wisdom of the traditional Chinese nation to all mankind."


    Academician Song Weihong, Wenzhou Medical University:

    "To protect the vulnerable elderly population from COVID-19 is a worldwide issue that requires urgent attention. Intervention measures such as community support, public education, telemedicine, and real-time psychological services should be adopted to reduce the impact of the epidemic on the elderly and Alzheimer's patients. "


    President Ji Jiafu, Peking University Cancer Hospital:

    "After the epidemic, the so-called normality as in the past has become farther and farther away from us. It may change the way we learn, the way we work, and the relationship between doctors and patients. We need to collaborate, especially international and domestic multi-center collaboration, which will benefit us."


    Professor Zhang Wenhong, Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University:

    "China has achieved phased results in the campaign against the epidemic with its scientific research capabilities, national leadership, people's cooperation, and great Oriental culture." He encouraged WMU students to be more open-minded, confident and creative.
