Opened in 1878, Western University ranks as one of Canada’s top research-intensive universities. Considered as the home ground of the discovery of insulin and cobalt radiation therapy, Western has a strong reputation for research excellence in various fields such as neuroscience through the BrainsCAN initiative, biomedical imaging through our state-of-the-art core imaging facilities, wind engineering and natural disaster mitigation through the WindEEE Dome, the world’s first 3-D wind test chamber, environmental sustainability and more.  With six research areas ranked in the top 100 globally and as the top 1% of higher education institutions worldwide, Western University is able to establish a culture of research excellence that is built on a shared, integrated research vision. Western advocates for international collaboration through establishing key partnerships with likeminded entities and expanding international research programs. Through WORLDiscoveries, the technology transfer and business development arm of Western University, Western is able to draw upon a mix of industry connections, sector-specific market knowledge and business development expertise to help researchers commercialize their discoveries through licensing and new company start-ups.

Objectives at Medical Fair Asia 2022
Western University’s objectives are to enhance Western’s position as a world-class leader in moving research out of the labs and into the lives of people around the world through public- and private-sector partnerships. We would also like to showcase Western University’s research excellences to engage governments, health care, corporations and businesses, not-for-profits, community groups, and other academic partners. Western University would like to foster international partnerships and research collaborations that enhance culture, develop technologies, innovate, inform policy, train the next generation’s leaders, and help shape societies.
