Cheng returns from visiting professorship in Japan

The timing of Prof. Hong Cheng’s visiting professorship to Chubu, Japan couldn’t have been more remarkable.

Even before the devastating earthquake and tsunami hit the island nation earlier this year, Prof. Cheng was making plans to head to Japan for spring quarter to do research and give guest lectures.
