Frontiers in Biomedical Research HKU 2011

Welcome Message

I take great pleasure in inviting you to attend the Frontiers in Biomedical Research, HKU 2011 organised by the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong on Friday, December 9, 2011.

The Symposium, which marks its 10th anniversary and being one of the highlighted scientific events of the University's Centenary celebrations, will continue to be an excellent platform for the exchange of cutting edge research knowledge in biomedical science. Distinguished international and local speakers will cover the major themes of the Faculty strategic and emerging research areas including Cancer, Healthy Aging, Infection and Immunology, Public Health, Reproduction and Development, and Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine. In addition, prominent scientists from mainland China have been invited to share with us their latest discoveries and insights in biomedical research and development in the mainland.

Building on its success in the past nine years, I am sure that our exciting scientific programme packed with insightful world-class speakers will inspire new ideas for advancing the frontiers of knowledge in biomedical science and translating bench discoveries into clinical applications.

We look forward to meeting you at this special event!
