Prof Vicky Tolfrey and Dr Jan van der Scheer visit South Korea

20 March 2018

Fruitful discussions took place around Vicky and Jan’s presentations at the symposium, helping to further build the work relationships with Dr Jongbae Kim and Dr Rory Cooper. 

Vicky and Jan also had a fantastic time visiting the Paralympics and enjoying beautiful Yonsei University in Wonju, while being excellently hosted by Dr Jongbae Kim and his students. 

It was also a great opportunity for Vicky and Jan to catch up with overseas colleagues such as Dr Cheri Blauwet and Dr Jan Lexell who were at the Paralympics.

Jan speaking about the trip: "Couldn’t be more happy about this fantastic week in Korea! What a great opportunity to experience such an excellent conference, be inspired by discussions and networking with international and national colleagues and last but definitively not least, experience the Paralympics for the first time!"
