  2. Single Cell Biology
  3. Stem Cells from Benchtop & Clinic
  4. From Cell & Molecular Mechanism Studies to Translational Clinical Model for Chronic Diseases (Cancer, Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease)
  5. Cancer Research & Precision Medicine
  6. Emerging Technologies in Drug Discovery
  7. Genome Biology & Cancer Research
  8. Neuroscience, Aging & Degenerative Diseases
  9. Cutting Edge Science and Technology

Last year, we were grateful to have gathered over 400 participants and scholars from ten different regions. Particularly, we were very honoured to have Ada Yonath, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2009 presented at the symposium. In addition, another renowned scientist, Douglas Lowy, Chief of the Laboratory of Cellular Oncology of National Institutes of Health (USA) and the receiver of the 2017 Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award were our keynote speakers in 2018.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to extend this invitation to all of you to join this exciting event. I sincerely look forward to seeing you at UM in June 2019.
