Jackie Chan Science Centre in Canberra
Chan lived in Canberra with his parents for several years in Canberra.
The center is just next to the Vanilla Bean Cafe and the Finkel Lecture Theatre, where I attended an innovation seminar and one on Research Participation in the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter Program.
The Jackie Chan Science Centre will showcase the history and current research of The John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) at The Australian National University.
It was made possible by a generous donation by international movie star Mr Jackie Chan. Mr Chan first visited JCSMR in December 2002 to make a donation to cancer research in memory of his mother and long-time Canberra resident Ms Lee Lee Chan.
