David is originally from Denmark and has been working and living in for the last 5 years. He accepted our invitation and arranged a lovely little tour of his operations in the hospital. We had the privilege of examining equipments that are worth millions and millions, and after his introductions, we were thrilled to find the advancements of brain research here on our island. Most of the people of Taiwan are probably not aware that we are rank very high on the charts globally in this area.

David's leisure activities are diving and parties. Looking good is also very important for our well-groomed guest this week. We are very happy and fortunate to meet such stylish and outgoing new friend.

David來自丹麥,在台灣工作已經五年。他答應接受我們的訪問,並在訪問當天安排了一個小行程,讓我們參觀他工作的醫院和設備,並介紹價值數百萬美元的醫療儀器。在他的解說下,我們很驚訝的發現,台灣的腦部手術與研究,在世界上名列前茅,顯然台灣還有許多不為人知的面向等待被發掘。

David的休閒生活是潛水和派對,並且非常重視穿著與打扮,對他來說,這是品味與禮儀,我們很高興認識這位優雅好客的新朋友。

Nice podcast. Nice web site. I enjoy almost every single episode very much. Great job, Henry and Julian!

在這一集的介紹中, Julian與Henry提到在David的解說下,「我們很驚訝的發現,台灣的腦部手術與研究,在世界上名列前茅,顯然台灣還有許多不為人知的面向等待被發掘」.

不過我想提醒的是: 有許多新穎昂貴先進的儀器,並不表示研究成果就是居於世界的前端.訪談中David提到的是很少有地方像台灣一樣,在這麼小的地方裡有如此密集的腦部掃描設備,他也提到政府確實願意投資經費在研究上,這些是可喜的事實.但是台灣的科學研究現狀之所以不令人滿意,之所以仍然居於相對上的邊陲,並不在於與歐美日相較沒錢或沒設備,而在於做研究的企圖與深度,以及有沒有可以配合的人力素質與相關的行政支援.換句話說,硬體設備沒問題,軟體系統則是主要瓶頸.

買一堆新穎儀器比較簡單,只要有錢又敢花錢就可以了;怎麼用這些好儀器做出好東西比較困難.很高興像David這樣的人士願意來台做研究,而我們大家仍要繼續努力.
