BoC helps establish Medical Oncology Chair at UCy

Following an endowment from Bank of Cyprus (BoC), a new Chair is being created at the University of Cyprus, the Medical Oncology Chair, it was announced on Tuesday.

At the same time, the university’s Finance Chair, established in 2000, will continue to operate, it said. The agreement with BoC was signed last month Professor Tasos Christofides, UCy Rector, and Michalis Persianis, Corporate Affairs Director at BoC.

“The ongoing partnership between Bank of Cyprus and University of Cyprus, the premier institute of higher learning in research, is a testament to the tangible recognition of our work by the country’s largest financial organisation,” said Christofides.

Persianis expressed the hope that the partnership would continue and expand to other areas other than the university chairs currently financed by the BoC.
