Important Message From The President

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to formally extend this invitation to you to participate in our Hong Kong Biotech Horizon 2016 events to be held in Hong Kong Science Park, Hong Kong, from 25th – 28th May, 2016 (Wed – Sat).

Hong Kong Biotech Horizon is an event series run by Hong Kong Biotechnology Organization whose objective is bringing together community of scientific researchers, technology developers and entrepreneurs towards progress in translational science. The first series of Hong Kong Biotech Horizons was "Translational Medicine: Promising Researches in Cancer Therapies and Diagnostics". The event comprised of conference symposium and public talk engaging the public community on raising awareness of importance of science in society.

This year's Hong Kong Biotech Horizon event on “Ageing Brain in Health” will follow suit, consisting of a three-and-a-half day International Conference on Brain Energy Metabolism with focus on "Energy Metabolism and Neuron-Glia Interactions in Brain: from Molecular Mechanisms to Novel Therapeutic Approaches" and a public talk on "Health. Longevity. Brain – New Technologies and Discoveries in Health, Longevity and Neurology". The conference aims to bring together leading experts and young emerging neuroscientists worldwide who are interested in diverse aspects of brain energy metabolism. The scientific program will include lectures by invited speakers, student/fellow presentations, poster sessions, interactive discussion sessions, and free time for informal discussions with colleagues. We hope to provide a platform for our participants to actively exchange ideas and establish contacts and future collaborations from around the world throughout the conference.

The public talk that follows our international conference will address an important health topic that concerns everyone, ageing brain. We aim to bring comprehensive knowledge to the research and health service community for progress and advancement in translating findings in brain research to effective solutions in brain diseases. We have received support and endorsement for our Ageing Brain in Health project from Science and Science Translational Medicine, two of the world's top respected peer-reviewed scientific journal publications of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

All interested participants should proceed with registration and payment at the earliest.
For further details or to register, please visit http://www.hkbio.org.hk/icbem/zc.html or email us at icbem@hkbio.org.hk.

We look forward to your participation in this important conference in Hong Kong.

Yours sincerely,
Albert Yu
