Foxconn Executive To Collaborate With UW On Cancer Research

7/27/17 – Making screen panels for T-Vs might not be the only thing Foxconn does in Wisconsin. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, executives of the Taiwanese firm have met with the U-W Madison cancer center about ways they can collaborate on cancer research. Foxconn chairman Terry Gou lost his younger brother and his first wife Serena Lin to cancer — and he is said to have donated hundreds of millions of dollars to the National Taiwan University’s cancer center where the director is a former fellow at the U-W, Ann Lii Cheng. In March, Gou said he was support cancer research using a newly created foundation and a center based in China for the sequencing of human genes.
