Israeli Consulate in Shanghai organises online lecture on innovation E-mail

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Israel, Nobel Prize Laureate Professor Aaron Ciechanover delivered an online lecture about innovation at the East China Normal University (ECNU) in Shanghai on 23 May.

The event was jointly organised by the Consulate General of Israel in Shanghai, ECNU and Haifa University in Israel.

The Israeli Consulate General in Shanghai invited Prof. Ciechanover, winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, to give the lecture. It was the first in a series of events to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of formal diplomatic relations between China and Israel.

During his lecture, Prof. Ciechanover expressed confidence that the cure for many types of cancer will be discovered, thanks to the progress in research on genes and personalised treatments. Addressing Chinese and Israeli students, he explained that it took merely a century to extend the average lifespan for humans from around 50 to 80 years, and commented that given our rapidly deepening understanding of the human body, it would soon be possible for man to “not just treat a disease, but to treat a disease within a person’s own individual body framework”.

He also answered many questions by students from both China and Israel, encouraging them to pursue their life’s passion.
