Biochemistry Alumni Association is one of the first departmental
alumni associations conceived at the CUHK. It was established three
years ago by a group of enthusiastic biochemistry graduates. The
idea of forming such an association came from the need to promote
friendship and to provide a nucleus of coherence among our fellow
graduates. The founding committee of the Biochemistry Alumni Association
was set up on September 7, 1991. Dr. H.K. Cheng (1976) was Chairman
of the First Executive Committee.
the time and energy devoted by our dedicated executive members,
the Association has grown steadily. Major work in the first two
years was to compile a Biochemistry Alumni Directory which is the
most popular request from our fellow alumni. The second edition
was published in June 1993. Financial constraint notwithstanding,
the Association succeeded in publishing several issues of Newsletters.
The Association continues to receive generous support from our graduates
both in the form of generous donations and active participation.
The donation is used for administration cost and for the establishment
of a Biochemistry Alumni Association Scholarship. From time to time,
the Association organizes dinner talks on popular subjects of biomedical
interest. The objective is to keep our fellow alumni abreast of
recent advances in biomedical science. The Association holds its
Annual General Meeting in September each year; this represents an
excellent chance to get together.
