Dr. James Bowsher, Director of Graduate Studies for the Duke Kunshan University Medical Physics Graduate Program, traveled from Duke to China in March to recruit students and help plan for the launch of the program this fall. During his 10-day visit, which included stops in Kunshan, Shanghai, and Beijing, Dr. Bowsher met with leaders of DKU, faculty at hospitals and other universities, physicists in industry, and prospective students.
At another stop, Dr. Bowsher visited Duke graduate Dr. Mu Chen at United Imaging Healthcare. Dr. Chen is now a Vice President in the PET division. He was advised in his SPECT PhD project by our own Dr. Ronald Jaszczak and collaborated closely with Drs. Bowsher and Tornai.
Pictures below were taken at the Beijing and Shanghai events. At the latter event, Dr. Bowsher and DKU Chancellor Liu Jingnan were joined by several other Duke alumni, including Dr. Zachary Forbes, Senior Scientist from Philips Research China, and Dr. Yun Yang, who graduated from the Duke radiation oncology physics residency program. Dr. Yang has served as an ambassador for the DKU medical physics program, traveling to dozens of universities in China to recruit students. (Photo by Jay Jie Shen.)
