On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are most delighted to invite you to the 12th International Symposium on Healthy Aging organised by the Research Centre of Heart, Brain, Hormone and Healthy Aging on 11-12 March 2017 at the Ballroom, Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers, Tsimshatsui, Hong Kong.
Following the success of the previous Symposia in 2006 to 2016, this year’s programme is titled “Wellness and Longevity: From Science to Service”. We will continue our focus on the promotion of healthy aging from a multidisciplinary perspective and provide updates on the development of novel therapeutic as well as diagnostic approaches against aging-related problems. Built around the four research themes of our Centre, namely “Degeneration and Regeneration”, “Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome”, “Vascular Biology”, and “Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering”, plenary lectures in areas of basic research, prevention, treatment, management, and rehabilitation will be offered in the 2-day scientific programme consisting of 10 major symposia and 2 lunch symposia. In addition, the Young Investigator Awards will be offered, under the sponsorship of Sun Chieh Yeh Heart Foundation, to recognise and award the outstanding young researchers for their oral and poster presentations.
We sincerely welcome all healthcare professionals to participate in this very stimulating and comprehensive meeting.
We look forward to seeing you!
