On May 19th, Prof. Jeff Gruen from Child Health Research Centre, Yale University School of Medicine, Prof. Jan Frijters from Brock University and Li Miao, Researcher of Child Health Research Centre, Yale University School of Medicine, met with BISU President Cao Weidong on the campus.

President Cao Weidong extended a warm welcome to the delegation members. The two parties mainly discussed the school-level scientific research cooperation and reached a consensus. BISU would support the trilateral program regarding “learning disabilities on Chinese and English languages” among a group of researchers from Yale University, Brock University and BISU. Based on this platform, a joint research centre was more likely to be established for the purpose of promoting the language studies of children and youth in China. After the meeting, the two sides had an in-depth discussion on specific issues such as the establishment of research platform, the timetable of cooperation and resource management.
