RMB200 million donation to build Tsinghua University Biomedical Sciences Building
The planned Biomedical Sciences Building will be mainly used by the School of Life Sciences for teaching and scientific research and will also house top scientific research institutions

Dr Lui Che-woo, chairman of K. Wah Group and director of LUI Che Woo Charity, has donated RMB200 million to Tsinghua University to fund the construction of two new blocks at the Tsinghua University Biomedical Sciences Building, which are set to provide better research and teaching facilities for the faculties and students, as well as support the development of medical, pharmaceutical science and other related disciplines of Tsinghua University.

To recognize Dr Lui for his enthusiasm and contributions to the development of Tsinghua University, the new blocks are named "Lui Che Woo Building".

Dr Lui has always been a passionate benefactor for the development of biomedicine and education. In 2015, he founded the "LUI Che Woo Prize -- Prize for World Civilisation" in Hong Kong as an annual, first of its kind international cross-sector innovative award for advancing world civilisation and inspiring people to build a more harmonious world. It aims to recognise and honour individuals or organisation all over the world for outstanding contributions and encourages the continuation of that work in promoting sustainable development of the world, betterment of the welfare of mankind and positive life attitude and positive energy.

The planned Biomedical Sciences Building will be mainly used by the School of Life Sciences for teaching and scientific research in life sciences, medicine, pharmaceutical sciences and other cross-disciplinary subjects. It will also house top scientific research institutions including Beijing Advanced Innovation Centre for Structural Biology, McGovern Institute for Brain Research and National Centre for Protein Science. Lui Che Woo Building, comprising Blocks C and D, is intended to provide the venue for teaching and scientific research in pharmaceutical sciences developments and cross-disciplinary subjects in life sciences, while housing scientific research institutions such as Global Health Drug Discovery Institute (Beijing), Tsinghua Pharmaceutical Innovation Centre and Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine.
