Event Announcement: Dinner with Purdue Professors (April 6, 2006)

The Purdue Club of Hong Kong cordially invites you to attend a dinner to meet Professor Sandra S. Liu and Professor Frank Perrella from Purdue on Thursday, 6 April 2006.

At the dinner, Professor Liu (Director, International Training for Discovery Park) and Professor Perrella (School of Pharmacy) will give a short talk on GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) in food and drug industry and hospital management - a pertinent current topic since many hospitals in Hong Kong, Macau and the Pearl River Delta are now on high alert for a possible strike of H5N1 bird flu pandemic. During their stay in China, the Purdue professors will visit Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Zhejiang University related to GMP training.

GMP, originally started in the pharmaceutical industry about 40 years ago, consists of concepts and practices to minimize contaminations from physical, chemical and microbiological sources. It was quickly accepted by the food industry and then by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Since the enactment of GMP in 1980s, it has gradually gained acceptance by the food and drug industries and governments worldwide.

The dinner with the Purdue visitors will be held at Peking Garden (Beijing Lou), 3rd floor, Star House, 3 Salisbury Road, Tsimshatsui, Kowloon on April 6 at 7:00 p.m. The cost will be about $250 per person, to be paid after dinner.

Please join us at the dinner, and register your attendance not later than 27 March 2006 by email at charlespmok@gmail.com, or by fax at 3007-4728.
