I would especially like to highlight the role of Professor Ken Walker in the development of both this project and the Georgian medical field. I personally have the honor of knowing him in person. Mr. Walker is a scientist of international importance, who is deeply in love with Georgia. He has done a great deal in creating the idea of this center, in conjunction with education Georgian students. Even today, his name and his merits are remembered with great love.
