Founding Master


‘Nurturing the next generation of talent; Developing leadership skills in harmony.’

Prof. Joseph Wan-yee Lau, SBS, a world-renowned expert on hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery and Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, is the Founding Master of Lee Woo Sing College. He is currently Professor of Surgery at CUHK.

A passionate researcher and well-loved teacher, Prof. Lau has, over the years, helped to nurture generations of surgeons both within and outside the mainland. He has made enormous contributions to radical excision in cancers of the liver and the hilar bile, as well as to liver transplantation, and is a founder of liver transplantation in Hong Kong and South-east Asia. Prof. Lau’s medical achievements have won him numerous honours, including fellowship/honorary fellowship in over 10 specialty colleges in the mainland and overseas.

Prof. Lau believes in the importance of general education, and the College will therefore play host to a diverse range of activities. Students will be encouraged to take part in overseas exchanges to enhance their communication, interpersonal and leadership skills, and hence to be equipped to contribute to Hong Kong and the motherland. He hopes his experiences will inspire students towards a broader vision, higher goals, greater courage, and the strength and resilience necessary to realise their goals.
