Alabama State University in Montgomery has entered into a partnership agreement with Yangzhou University in China. Under the agreement there will be faculty and student exchanges between the two universities.
Much of the activity will center around research in nanobiotechnology. Xinan Jao, president of Yangzhou University stated, “ASU is a pioneer in the Nanobiotechnology field. It’s also very important to build a bridge between the two institutions for our young people so that they can work together, study together and learn to understand each other. There are also business collaborations between our province and the State of Alabama, so it’s very good for us to collaborate.”
