2011 Dec 2 Linus Pauling Symposium at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) co-hosted by Prof Yong X. Wang and Prof Dongqing Wei, SJTU

Dear Grace, Thank you for taking your precious time to bring so many speakers here to speak at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). Honestly speaking, I learned much more knowledge not only from sciences but also from life. Thanks for teaching us to be useful for the society & the world. Thanks for inspiring us to help our boss succeed and also respect our mentors. Thanks for sharing your exciting science and practical advice. I will need to pick up a lot skills to make myself useful. The advice from the Pauling Symposium speakers has broadened my horizons. For example, how to start, develop and grow a company. I really liked the symposium so much not only because of the free pizza or Chinese food, but because the valuable advice and the opportunity to meet speakers face to face for future jobs or collaborations. I believe others also enjoyed the Pauling symposium very much. It was my pleasure to volunteer to take photos for the symposium. I look forward to taking more photos for the future Nobel-Pauling Biotech Pharma Symposium. Thank you, Gold Road
