NCKU News (2012/03/21) National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Tainan, southern Taiwan, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Ohio State University (OSU) College of Pharmacy on March 20 at the NCKU College of Medicine as part of its effort to enhance its international academic cooperation and most importantly to improve the clinical research on pancreatic cancer.

Under the agreements, both universities will launch joint projects in pancreatic cancer research to develop effective diagnostic markers and therapeutic agents for this malignancy.
