Old ways new directions
My Vietnam project progress report is published in NHRI's eletronic newspaper volume 174 Nov. 2, 2006 in which, how the first enterovirus infection case in Children number 1 hospital HCMC has been identified by using molecular biology is discribed (link to the enews). Before I left Vietnam, the director of the hospital told me that there would be a news report in the local paper about how I helped them in setting up a lab for clinical diagnosis. I was certainly happy to hear that and hope the technique I introduced to them can be implemented in their hospital. The road is now paved however would they find the new direction is still waiting to be answered.
