Representing 20 years of UNC-Thai collaboration

Thai Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn visits Carolina in late spring, hosted by the Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise. Her visit follows two decades of collaboration between UNC and the Thai government coordinated by the Kenan Institute’s affiliate in Bangkok, Kenan Institute Asia. Above, the princess, center, poses at the welcome dinner party with Chancellor Holden Thorp and Joan Gillings, wife of Dennis Gillings. The Gillings School of Global Public Health is named for the couple. Below, the princess chats with Oliver Smithies, Excellence Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, at her farewell dinner.
