Welcome Message

I am delighted to present to you Frontiers in Biomedical Research, HKU 2010, the annual flagship research symposium of The University of Hong Kong Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, to be held on Friday, December 3, 2010.

Organized for the ninth consecutive years since 2002, the Symposium has been a platform for the exchange of cutting edge research and ground breaking scientific discovery. It is structured in line with the five strategic research themes of the Faculty, i.e. Cancer, Healthy Aging, Infection and Immunology, Public Health, and Reproduction and Development. Throughout the years the Organizing Committee has made every effort to enhance the Symposium's scientific programme to keep it on par with the latest developments in medical research, and this year the emerging research fields of Stem Cells and Genomics have been incorporated in an attempt to further enrich the programme.

I am sure that participants of the Symposium will enjoy the exciting and inspiring presentations by renowned overseas and local speakers, which will definitely stimulate innovative ideas and bring new directions to our future research endeavours.

Looking forward to meeting you in the Symposium!


Dr Danny Chan
Chairperson, Organizing Committee
