May 28, 2012 (Chengdu) We had our early morning Tian Chenlou breakfast (always interesting for the uninitiated) and then the SPPH van picked us up to tour the SPPH hospital. This was Dr. Skuta's first visit to Chengdu, so tour of both the research and clinical facilities gave him a good overview of the magnitude of the work being done here as well as the overwhelming flow of patients as we walked through the facilities. The core genomics laboratory was one of the research highlights and then a general tour of the hospital and the ophthalmology clinics and wards gave us a synopsis of how SPPH hospital is set up. Ubiquitous in the tours here are red-clad young attractive nurses that politely guide you through every step and turn...quite amusing...you'll see them in the photos.
