Director Seo Hyo-seok of Pyungkang Korean Medicine Hospital in Seoul donated 100 million won in development fund to his alma mater Kyung Hee University.
President Hahn Kyun-tae of Kyung Hee University, Dean Lee Jae-dong of Oriental Medicine University, Professor Kim Ho-cheol, Director Seo Hyo-seok and Deputy Director Park Seong-hyo of Pyunkang Korean Medicine Hospital, and other officials from the hospital attended the ceremony to deliver the development fund, which was held at the main building of Kyung Hee University's Seoul Campus on June 24.
The donation by Director Seo, who entered the oriental medicine department of Kyung Hee University in 1966, will be used as a fund for the "Kyung Hee Oriental Medicine Nobel Project." It is a project of the Oriental Medicine University for the globalization of oriental medicine.
The Kyung Hee Oriental Medicine Nobel Project is the goal of the Kyung Hee Oriental Medicine University, which was announced in 2018. Under the goal of growing into the world's top university in education, research, medical care and human welfare by 2030, many donations are being made, mainly from alumni.
Director Seo said, "I remember that Dean Lee Jae-dong explained the Nobel project of Kyung Hee Oriental Medicine University by using the expression 'human-centered future medicine'. This has moved my mind.
“We must persuade modern people through the scientificization of oriental medicine using both statistics and physiology. It is not impossible for a person in the oriental medicine field to become a Nobel Prize winner.”
