Dear Colleague:
We are deeply honored to invite you to attend the Fourteenth International Symposium of the Society of Chinese Bioscientists in America (The 14th SCBA International Symposium) in Xi鈥檃n, China, from July 19th to 22nd, 2013.
Life science is one of the most thriving research fields in China and around the world, with enormous implications on human health and social advancement. The last few decades have witnessed the birth and growth of molecular biology, human genome science, stem cell biology and a variety of interdisciplinary subjects that have profoundly enriched our knowledge of human life. The discoveries and achievements have also provided unprecedented opportunities for the sustainable development in agriculture, medicine, energy, environment and many other industries.
Now we are delighted to announce that the 14th SCBA International Symposium will be held in July 2013 in Xi鈥檃n, Shaanxi. The symposium will be co-sponsored by SCBA and the Chinese Academy of Engineering and co-hosted by The Forth Military Medical University and the Translational Medicine and Biotechnology Innovation Alliance of China. Invited speakers include Nobel laureates, members of the US National Academy of Sciences, academicians of Chinese Academy of Engineering and Science, and other experts in biological and biomedical sciences. In order to strengthen communications and collaborations, young scientists are encouraged to submit their abstract for poster presentations. One with excellent work might win a prize.
Xi'an, the capital city of thirteen dynasties in ancient China, owns a long history and a splendid culture. The world heritage Terra Cotta Warriors and other renowned treasures have made Xi鈥檃n a must-see place for visitors from all over the world. Today, top-notch research,  high-end technology and a wealth of educational resources have brought a new look to this burgeoning city. Besides scientific communication, a number of tours and activities will be available for symposium participants.
We appreciate your concern and support, and look forward to meeting you!
