BEIJING, Jan.?19 (Xinhuanet) –Turning China into a leader in science and technology is a long-term goal, but Chinese in the intensely competitive fields are already making advances in terms of respect among international peers.
“Chinese scientists are among the brightest and most talented scientific force in the world,” said Richard Zhao, a co-director of the Society of Chinese Bioscientists in America, which has 2,500 members from academia, medicine and business.
He credits China’s increased openness and improved educational system over the past 30 years.
Chinese scientists who return home after studying abroad are also crucial in expanding their country’s base of expertise by passing on their training and education in developed economies to succeeding generations, said Zhao, who is also a professor of pathology at the University of Maryland medical school and head of the university hospital’s molecular diagnostics lab.
