Past PPSSC Conference

Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite all of you to participate in the 8th Asia Pacific Symposium on Neural Regeneration (APSNR), in conjunction with the 5th Pan Pacific Symposium on Stem Cells and Cancer Research (PPSSC) and the 1st Cross-Strait Biotechnology Forum in Taipei, Taiwan, April 13-15, 2012.

The conjunction of the two symposia opens an interactive area for the two fields, enriches our scientific program with latest research results, application, and offers numerous opportunities to expects to communicate with each other. Great insight, fruitful discussion await you at this combined meeting.

Our scientific program covers the latest technology, current status, while offering opportunities to connect with experts, scholars, doctors and students who are studying the neural regeneration, stem cells and cancer. This year, our main themes for APSNR and PPSSC are as follows:

Asia Pacific Symposium on Neural Regeneration (APSNR)
1. Protection after CNS Trauma and Stroke
2. Enhancing Cell Survival in Neurodegenerative Diseases
3. Neuroplasticity, Sprouting, and Functional Repair in Animal Models of Neural Disorders
4. Cell Replacement and Gene Therapy Strategies for the Nervous System
5. Nanotechnology and Neuro-Engineering
6. Translating Discoveries to Human Therapies

Pan Pacific Symposium on Stem Cells and Cancer Research (PPSSC)
1. Molecular Biology of Stem Cell and Cancer Stem Cells
2. Cell Therapy in Regenerative Medicine and Cancer
3. Gene-Stem Cell Therapy in Diseases
4. Discovery of Targeted Drug Therapy
5. Clinical Trials in Regenerative Medicine and Cancer

The 1st Cross-Strait Biotechnology Forum
1. New Drug Development and Clinical Trials
2. Stem Cell Therapy and Clinical Trials
3. New Device Development and Clinical Application
4. Food Supplement Production
5. Cross-Strait Regulatory Comparison in Drug Development, Medical Device, Stem Cell Therapy, and Dietary Supplement
6. Evaluation of Biotechnology from VC's Perspective
7. Medical Cosmetology

Other than the scientific program, you should find the opportunities to explore the incomparable beauty of Taipei. We ensure that you have a very pleasant and unforgettable experience in Taiwan. Finally, I cordially approve you to participant this conference and submit your abstract. With your support and participation, I believe the 8th APSNR and the 5th PPSSC conference will be successful as the previous conferences have showed to us. I am sure you can enjoy your stay with unique Taiwanese culture and delicious cuisine in April, 2012.

Sincerely yours,

Shinn-Zong (John) Lin, M.D., PhD
